Devuan 5 daedalus repos don't work.

Hello to everyone.

I've installed devuan 5 for armhf on my ARM chromebook,using these repos :

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus                  main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-security         main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-updates          main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/devuan daedalus-proposed-updates main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-backports        main

but I'm not able to install anything. They are wrong. It can't connect to any of those repos. The error message I get is the following :

InRelease is not valid yet (limited for another x;y;z time. Updates for this repos will not be applied.

What are the correct repos ? thanks.

Re: Devuan 5 daedalus repos don't work.

First of all you should correct the fourth line to also read:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-proposed-updates main

Since Daedalus isn't released yet, I would uncomment this line for the time being.

The rest looks ok, at least for amd64 it works.

Re: Devuan 5 daedalus repos don't work.

This last couple of years my observation is that the Chiefs at Devuan have to modify|update deb.devuan.org all the time, and half the time it does not work, I became quite cheesed off about this, so I picked a mirror practical to my locale and it very very rarely fails.
Sorry.

Re: Devuan 5 daedalus repos don't work.

I've realized that the date and time on my chromebook are wrong. I'm pretty sure that this is the cause. Now,I tried different methods to fix them,but none worked. How can I synchronize date and time on devuan from the command line ?

It seems like a cat that tries to eat its tail. I can't synchronize time and data using the internet because the repos don't let me do it ; I tried to reconfigure it using the command dpkg-reconfigure tzdata,but it fails. It also fails using timedatectl because it says command not found (and I can't install it for the same reason explained above). Service ntp and ntpd aren't there ; what else ?

Re: Devuan 5 daedalus repos don't work.

Normally this is a setting in the bios. Would be the first approach to fix this.

If ntp and nptdate aren't installed, you have no chance to use this path. BTW: with Daedalus(Bookworm) the path to the ntp.conf has changed to /etc/ntpsec.

Then cli remains: here is the link to an article that describes how to use the console to adjust date and time (scroll down towards the bottom past the timedatectl section): https://phoenixnap.com/kb/how-to-set-or … ime-ubuntu

Re: Devuan 5 daedalus repos don't work.

Thanks, it worked doing :

date --set 2023-08-06
date --set 20:50:00

thanks.
