Python 3 and the android-tools packages are from the main Debian repos, so the test repo isn't going to affect anything.

You can get rid of that error message by installing apt-transport-https.

Thanks Stevo. Installing that package and using the Check Apt GPG solved the error messages I was getting.

I also found android-tools packages. However, enabling the http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ repo and reloading didn't show python 3.x. What repo should I enable to get the higher version?

Thanks

python and python3 were installed by default on MX-16.1.
You might need to change the calling script to use python3 instead of python.
There are other ways to have it more general but I don't have it at the moment.

Sometimes that ftp.xx.debian.org does not work properly (maybe due to redirection issue or something else).

So try replacing it with a direct mirror from this list, https://www.debian.org/mirror/list-full#NZ and then reload do an apt-get update. It should work.

To list the installed python packages, try this code,

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | grep 'python'
or

Code: Select all

apt list --installed 'python*'

Python and python3 are metapackages that depends on python 2.7.9 and python 3.4.2 respectively. You can't remove python 2 from the system without destroying it, but I'm not sure how essential python 3 is yet.

(...) If anyone else can help, I need to solve this because I really need a python version that is 3.x or higher.
In MX-17.1, I can see a package named "fastboot 1:7.0.0+r33-1" in the repos. Can you see it?


Greetings, Joe
