In the upcoming release of Ubuntu 18.04 APT repositories without signed “Release” files aren’t supported out of the box anymore. I’ve therefore changed my Debian & Ubuntu APT repositories to a new layout that includes proper “Release” files. This also means that you have to update your APT repository definition.
Here’s what such a change would look like:
deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/artful/ ./
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/artful/ ./
deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ artful main
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ artful main
Head over to the downloads page where you can copy & pate the appropriate entries from.
i. i’ve updated sources.list in my debian jessie, but apt update give me error in your new repository. can you help me please?
Copy & paste both the error and what how your sources.list looks like, and maybe I can.
W: Failed to fetch https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/dists/jessie/Release Unle to find expected entry ‘main//source/Sources’ in Release file (Wrong sourcelist entry or malformed file)
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones us instead.
this is the error when apt-get update
deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ jessie main/
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ jessie main/
this is the sources.list part regarding mkvtoolnix
until version 22.0 all ok. now can’t update.
Thank you for your help.
OMG!!! all ok…. a / that change life!!!…. thanks for your patience..
Yeah, that `main/` must be `main` without the slash.
On Xenial, with `/etc/apt/sources.list.d/mkvtoolnix.download.list` containing the following:
deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ xenial main
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ xenial main
and running `apt-get update`, I get the following error message:
W: The repository ‘https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu xenial Release’ does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can’t be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages Received HTTP code 403 from proxy after CONNECT
What’s the cause of this issue?
Those two lines work just fine for me — verified by copy-pasting your lines into a new list on my installation.
The URL your apt doesn’t seem to find, https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages, works just fine for me, too.
My guess is that you have a proxy server between your server and mine that frells your downloads.
Same problem, no proxy, also tried copy and paste from above with same result.
Okay – had an extra file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ with old style source list. Removed that now problem solved
