Synaptic upgrading mx-packageinstaller-pkglist ends with an error

#1 Post by Eadwine Rose » Thu Apr 26, 2018 2:36 am

Upgraded mx-packageinstaller-pkglist (18.03.06) to 18.03.07 just now and after the install ended succesfully I got this pop up message:

Code: Select all

W: Download is performed unsandboxed as root as file '/root/.synaptic/tmp//tmp_sh' couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission denied)

Package is installed, just reloaded and nothing out of the ordinary appears, but I wanted to let you guys know about this.

I just ran the update/upgrade with MX Updater and saw no message like that. Ran as normal.

I get that message all the time when using "apt". So far i haven't noticed any problems but Maybe time to look into the message some.

Yes, I see that message from time to time.
Basically, just ignored it since I always thought
apt-get was out of the sandbox, anyway.
Seemed like a Java message?

I just got the warning twice using synaptic.
As with Eadwine Rose, both times the packages were installed.
I got no warning installing with MX Package Installer.
No big deal since the stuff gets installed... just wanted to let you know.

If someone did something - thanks!
