Aptitude problem

Is there a current problem with http://devuan.org/merged ?

I haven't found any notification anywhere, but there are error messages about files not being downloaded.

Re: Aptitude problem

That's the wrong URL: http://deb.devuan.org/merged/

And for future reference:

Please always post the full, verbatim error messages rather than a vague description — it's easier for you and less confusing for us.

Re: Aptitude problem

Here is what I get trying to use apt-get update

E: Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'testing' to 'stable'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
E: Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-updates InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'testing-updates' to 'stable-updates'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
E: Repository 'http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-security InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'testing-security' to 'stable-security'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.

My /etc/apt/sources list refers to "beowulf" not "stable" or "testing" and has worked since the time of the beta release.

Re: Aptitude problem

Run

# apt update
# apt upgrade

Then answer "yes" when it asks.

Re: Aptitude problem

As a final comment, which might be useful to others, I do routine updates (usually weekly) using aptitude, which only told me that some files had not been downloaded, without explanation or query. If I had run apt, I would have received more explanation, and the prompts about what to do. As I have been using beowulf for some time, I did not anticipate any difficulties when its status changed officially to "stable".
