This sounds like good advice, but I do not know who are the moderators. Is there a list somewhere I have missed?

I started a discussion by posting a question back in 5/19.  The discussion in still going, and although it has wandered quite a bit, I have enjoyed reading the replies up until now.  Things have taken a bad turn, and now it is the usual pro and con systemd blather that I can read at a hundred other places.

As the originator of the discussion do I have any ability to close it or move it to Off-Topic?  I cannot find any such controls on the page.

#4 Re: News & Announcements » Migrating from Buster to Beowulf - feedback needed » 2020-02-05 07:03:58

Congratulations Dan,

It looks to me like you did a good job.  I hope it all works for you.  Just a note:

  "Also the "beowulf-security" doesn't yet exist (because it's "testing"?) so I commented it out from sources.list. Once the keyring was installed, I removed the "[trusted=yes]" from sources.list."

Actually, if you check http://deb.devuan.org/merged/dists/, beowulf-security, beowulf-updates, beowulf-backports, and beowulf-proposed-updates all exist now.

Michael

So, what happens?  Can someone resubmit the job, or does it just sit for days until something mysterious fixes it?

I saw an article in slashdot.org today:

https://linux.slashdot.org/story/19/09/ … -diversity

It sounded like the project director was politely asking the different development teams to work together like grown ups.

If Debian should go systemd init only, will the Devuan development team be able to handle the added work of providing a systemd-free OS still based on Debian?  It sounds like it would be a lot more work.

The package repository at http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/ has not been updated since 7/30/19.  Therefore, no security upgrades are available - again.

I have been looking at the amprolla3 software to try and understand what is causing this recurrent problem.  Since the missing files in the amprolla.txt file always seem to start with a Contents file, is it possible that the amprolla_merge_contents.py program needs to be run more often than the developers intended?

/nag
Although I am not running any public servers with devuan, those who are running public servers do need to have timely security upgrades available for the safety of their servers.  I do not think this is a trivial problem.

#10 Re: Other Issues » Ceres will not update » 2019-07-28 18:37:27

Hmmmm .... curious.

When I was having problems getting ceres to update, because of the system clock issue, I typed "apt-cache search ntp".  It came back with nothing.  Now the search comes back with a lot of things, including ntp.  Perhaps the aborted update messed up the available package listing.

As an aside, I don't actually need ntp for the virtual machine.  I just forgot to click the box in the machine settings for how to handle the hardware clock from the host.  This had not been causing any problems with updating until a few days ago.

#11 Re: Other Issues » Ceres will not update » 2019-07-28 07:42:20

Okay...sorry.

I figured out what you meant.  It was the system time on the virtual machine.  It was way off.  I fixed it and everything worked fine again.

There are NO ntp utilities in ceres!

#12 Re: Other Issues » Ceres will not update » 2019-07-28 06:27:51

I'm not quite sure what you mean.  If you mean my laptop, then the time is right on.  If you mean the server's system time, I don't know how to do that.

For several days now, when I try to run apt-get update on my ceres virtual machine I keep getting messages like this:

Get:1 http://deb.devuan.org/merged ceres InRelease [25.6 kB]
Reading package lists... Done       
E: Release file for http://deb.devuan.org/merged/dists/ceres/InRelease is not valid yet (invalid for another 4h 19min 45s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.

The length of time the InRelease file is still invalid varies among my different attempts, but the result is the same.

I was originally using unstable in my sources.list file when this started.  I tried changing it back to ceres, but, as your can see, it had no effect.

#14 Re: Other Issues » InRelease, Release, and Release.gpg files need updating » 2019-07-08 07:39:10

It has happened again.  The release files for all the http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged/dists/ directories have not been updated since 7/07/19 01:30.

#15 Re: Other Issues » InRelease, Release, and Release.gpg files need updating » 2019-06-20 19:29:43

I am afraid I have reached the level of my incompetence here.  I am not a python programmer, so a lot of this is gibberish to me.
I am going to keep trying to understand it, but don't hold your breath waiting for help from me.

#16 Re: Other Issues » InRelease, Release, and Release.gpg files need updating » 2019-06-20 00:55:40

On the issue from 6/14, all that I could find were a lot of error 404 on the debian website.  It as as if it was not online.  Then it ended with :
2019/06/14 15:02:31 [ERR] ("Connection broken: ConnectionResetError(104, 'Connection reset by peer')", ConnectionResetError(104, 'Connection reset by peer'))

It seems that the internet connection to the devuan server was terminated.

On the issue from 6/17, the same massive 404 messages from debian, but no internet disconnection message.

That's all I can see from that.  Does that make any sense to anyone?

#17 Re: Other Issues » InRelease, Release, and Release.gpg files need updating » 2019-06-19 22:28:06

Well, today is 6/19 and now the last versions of the files are 6/17.  Once again, no updates for packages.

On the server http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged/dists/ none of the InRelease, Release, or Release.gpg files in any of the folders have been updated since 14-Jun-2019.  This prevents any updating or upgrading of packages.

#19 Re: Other Issues » ceres repository no longer has a Release file - cannot update » 2019-05-28 19:56:09

Yes - it worked with unstable instead of ceres.

I wonder why?

When I run apt-get update I get the following:

Ign:1 http://deb.devuan.org/merged ceres InRelease
Err:2 http://deb.devuan.org/merged ceres Release
  404  Not Found [IP: 131.188.12.211 80]

E: The repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged ceres Release' no longer has a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

This has been happening for two days now.

I tried reading man apt-secure but the only solution I could find there was to accept insecure repositories, which is not recommended.

In think something has to be done with the repository.

#21 Re: Other Issues » Is the debian/devuan merge working right? » 2019-04-24 18:08:41

The original issue I posted in the first message has been resolved.  Ceres, Beowulf, and Ascii are now all updating and upgrading packages correctly.

I cannot speak for the installation issues others have mentioned here.

Thank you.

#22 Re: Other Issues » Is the debian/devuan merge working right? » 2019-04-22 17:25:02

I used my browser to search http://deb.devuan.org/merged/dists/ then I checked the directories ceres, beowulf, and ascii.

They all showed that the files InRelease, Release, and Release.gpg had last modified dates of 2019-04-17, so they have not been updated for 5 days so far.

#23 Re: Other Issues » Is the debian/devuan merge working right? » 2019-04-21 07:00:37

Thanks for the try Rolf, but I commented out the ascii line and reran apt-get update.  Nothing changed.  That's not it.

I am still only getting Hits and no Gets on apt-get update.

Should I change the http to https everywhere?

For several days now, when I run apt-get update on beowulf, or ceres, it comes back with just Hits, and no Gets.  The corresponding debian versions of buster and sid have been getting package upgrades, but these are not appearing in the devuan lists.  The same thing is happening with ascii, but I do not have a corresponding debian system to compare it to.

I have trouble believing that all these debian upgraded packages require devuan modifications.

I am using the resource of http://deb.devuan.org/merged.

Was there something about the resource that I was supposed to modify?

Otherwise, it seems like the merge is not working.
