Re: Unable to locate package dvswitch-server

For anyone else's benefit,

I was missing source repo list

/etc/apt/sources.list

This is what it should read:

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib

Installed just fine after fix


I would note that my install came from amd64 asl iso.

are you saying that apt upgrade does not install updates?

That is where it takes system updates but can not install them all.

I'm pretty sure that is what the other fella was having a issue with but can't speak to that if it was not buster

OK,
step one:
Make sure your existing system is up to date.
apt update
apt upgrade

What is wrong there?

No, back up a step, I talking system.

apt update

apt apgrade

That script is the first step. It adds the buster repo.

The issue was not with the install script.

Never got that far.

The issue was updated repository's that are broken.

I don't see any way it would install a pointer to http://dvswitch.org/ASL_Repository stretch

I have the same issue with Buster

I was able to manually update packages until ssh-client/server and one other related

Stopped till I have time to fool with it again.

I assume you mean this:

wget http://dvswitch.org/buster
sudo chmod +x buster
sudo ./buster
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dvswitch-server

The buster script would have either added the buster repository or told you that it was already installed.

Check /etc/apt/sources.list.d/allstarlink.list

deb http://dvswitch.org/DVSwitch_Repository buster hamradio

Then:
apt-get update
apt-get install dvswitch-server
