Upgrade problems due to debian Etch repos moved

Post by pa » 22 Jun 2010, 09:42

Debian has changed its location for the Etch repositories, which has led to that currently Bubba can not download these files. The result of this is that all updates will now hang.

We will release an hotfix for this, probably tomorrow (June 23rd). To run updates, make sure that the "hotfix" checkbox is enabled.

Thanks pa.

I just noticed this yesterday. I couldn't actually find the repos so I assumed they'd been removed. I'll just wait for the hotfix instead of manually editing the sources.list.

The hotfix will actually only disable the missing etch repos, we try to do as litte as possible through a hotfix.
The update to the correct etch repos will come in a normal upgrade.

However if you manually want to change the repos, here is the new location:
http://archive.debian.org/debian/dists/etch/

Your sources.list should have the line:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ etch main

Instead of the old line:
deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian etch main

The hotfix is now available and should make upgrades possible again.

What's the hotfix done exactly? I assumed it was going to comment out the bad lines in sources.list but they are still there.

The WebGUI upgrade doesn't work for me.
It keeps restarting some time after having reached 40%.
I have hotfixes included though...

Nevertheless, following works fine, smooth, and quickly

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The hotfix will only be applied if you have a version that is less than 2.0.3.
So if you have managed to get 2.0.3, the system can update, thus the hotfix should not be applied.

Which version do you have?
Have you enabled "hotfixes"?

I think I can confirm this problem. I got stuck at 40%, but when I restarted the update some five minutes later it worked ok.
