apt-get update failure

#1 Post by RayJay62 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 6:44 pm

Hi All,

I need to know how to fix my update failures.
It keeps failing on the following:

E: Failed to fetch http://iso.mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/main ... _amd64.deb 404 Not Found

When I go to that like the actual file location, the filename is version is mx-repo-manager_18_12.1_amd64.deb. With a '.1' sub release in the name.

How do I get that changed in the updating system (apt-get)?

Thanks,
Ray

It's been updated probably right now, give it some time till it gets in sync and then run again "apt-get update" (or refresh in Synaptic or whatever you use)

I'm having a similar problem connecting to iso.mxrepo.com to do normal updates on already installed packages. I can't seem to connect to the repo. It gets to that point and hangs for a while and then closes.

Eventually, I get a message saying it was unable to fetch that repo and suggests running apt-get update --fix-missing, but that does no good. Instead, I get the following:

There is some shifting/relocation of that repo at the moment.

Just hold off updating for a few hours and try again.

Don't mean to a pain, but I tried the update today and it failed with this:

Err http://iso.mxrepo.com/mx/repo/ mx15/main mx-repo-manager amd64 18.12.1 404 Not Found
E: Failed to fetch http://iso.mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/main ... _amd64.deb 404 Not Found

When I go to URL location, the location already has a 18.2.5 release where apt-get is looking for 18.12.1.

Let me know how to proceed.

run

Code: Select all

apt-get update

we are updating that particular app at a rapid pace because we are getting a ton of new apt mirrors set up.

Being one who lives in a country where the repo is often dragging the chain, I have a standard procedure. Don't worry about it, simply try again tomorrow. Remember that
the MX team is s small one, and at a time when many new mirrors are being set up, and the MX18 RC is just about with us, some delays are inevitable. Have patience.
