Manual Updates Pi-Star:3.4.17 / Dashboard:20190402

Post by VK3VM » Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:14 pm

Hi Folks,

When a sudo apt update / sudo apt dist-upgrade combo is launched at the command prompt several distro sources referred to do not exist:

Err http://httpredir.debian.org jessie-backports/main armhf Packages
404 Not Found
Err http://httpredir.debian.org jessie-backports/contrib armhf Packages
404 Not Found
Err http://httpredir.debian.org jessie-backports/non-free armhf Packages
404 Not Found

There is no jessie-backports folder in the main distro sets when the issue is examined further.

I assume that this is not related to some of the V4 issues reported below...

If you're using Pi-Star, those aren't the correct commands. Instead, for a Pi-Star Update, run:

Code: Select all

sudo pistar-update
But just so you know, you're on the most recent dashboard update version, 20190402. Running an update can still be beneficial, as it will get you the most recent hosts files.

For an explanation of the different types of Pi-Star updates, as well as Pi-Star upgrades, see:

Something is completely broken in the raspbian realm, I tried to update one of my v4.0.0-RC3 setups and its completely trashed today. I ended up just giving up trying to fix it and starting over, I couldn't see anyone else reporting such a problem on various other websites, so no idea whats going on.

There shouldn't be any problems running those commands from a terminal manually, thats essentially all the pistar-upgrade script is doing right after it makes the disk RW.

Pistar runs a slightly modified version of the OS.
It's paired down so it runs over various pi models from the lower spec zero to the higher spec 3b+ etc. So it can do it's thing regardless of hardware used.
There are well established ways in which to do all the things you need to do using the 'pistar command' set.

If you need a full raspbian image I'd suggest you install raspbian and compile/ install MMDVM as a vanilla install. Then you'll have access to all the std. raspb. CLI commands. But you obvs. won't have access to the web server config setup, the GUI, the auto updates, the maintained host files, the ability to select any mmdvm hardware, that you can update in most cases at the click of ur mouse. all the things that pistar gives you, in trade of a few CLI commands.

What has been modified in terms of the base OS or the kernel?

Code: Select all

[email protected](ro):~$ cat /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION_ID="9"
VERSION="9 (stretch)"

But thats what all the universal raspbian images at raspberrypi.org do.

What "std. raspb. CLI commands" have been removed that I don't have access to currently?

There is no "trading", the pistar-update script executes "apt-get". It is the very SAME command, just a different way to execute it.

It sounds like you know your way around Raspbian, so you probably can figure it out for yourself here: https://github.com/AndyTaylorTweet

No repositories on that link show any modified/custom OS binaries.

Thanks.

Hi Folks,

Thanks for all the comments here ... and yes it appears as if something is broken (or going into over simplification) in the "repository land" (and its getting worse) serving our 3.4.17.

The focus for us here in "Pi-Star land" is the upcoming 4.x releases... and at the higher levels the "stretch" and "buster" releases rather than the tried and trusted "jessie" releases that 3.4.17 is based upon.

Thanks also to those who made comment with regards to the dedicate pi-star scripts. [ I was well aware of these]. There are occasions when sudo apt update / sudo apt dist-upgrade command-line sequences are useful when some well known Debian issues or some form of repository corruption (i.e. upstream proxies; many ISP's do upstream cache files) is suspected.

The only way that issues get "recognised" and "fixed" is if "pressure" is placed from reasonable comments start emanating from reputable sources such as this forum.

[ Note that text is an appalling way to communicate as most are trained for brevity ... and sometimes misinterpretation of intent can emanate from those of us that are a little wordy ]

Yes Debian have pulled those repos - it should not cause any more than a cosmetic issue, but yes we do need to push on and get v4 out of RC status, I have a few small things to fix before that happens and then we'll get to work on the next major release.
