Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Error during install: 'Failed to fetch http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main … _amd64.deb 404  Not Found [IP: 213.157.243.77 80]

had to go to the terminal, the abovementioned error is what i keep getting (naturally runing sudo gdebi ...). The example is for google erath.

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

As a workaround, cd to the directory where you downloaded the deb, run

sudo dpkg -i *.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Post your sources list:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

And try to use proper grammar.  wink

If gdebi refuses to install the packages, do it manually:

sudo dpkg -i <package>

If not all dependencies can be fetched:

sudo apt-get install -f

Maybe you also have to update your system before installing new packages:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Also, assure that you use the right .deb packages for your system and architecture when you try to download them from the net (Skype and Google Earth).

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Ok, not sure how to properly display this (in a box), so just a copy paste from the terminal. It is a fresh #! 11 install.

blaz@zz:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list

As for manually installing packages, you do realize we're talking about, say, 40 packages for GE and approx 15 for skype... it is a pain typing, when the system tool should work. Trying abovementioned advice as we speak...

apt-get install -f will install all of them for you at once, no worries.

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Hi there,

tried through Ivan's advice, but I get the following error

Err http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy/main libc6-i386 amd64 2.13-35
  404  Not Found [IP: 130.89.149.21 80]
Failed to fetch http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main … _amd64.deb  404  Not Found [IP: 130.89.149.21 80]
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

pinging the IP did not work either.

Then my humble me restarted the modem, router and computer... and now it works (extremely slow, but...)???

I'll try to install the aforementioned stuff now and let you know on how it went

thanks,

f

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

hi there,

thanks for all the help. Now that it is connecting, i have repaired broken packages and dependencies and proceeding. There should be no more problems.

Just a quick question while we're at it: debian does not automatically update or check for updates (like ubuntu does) - the user has to do this by himself?

thanks again, have fun

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

I would say the mirror was down, you are not the first reporting this. You can also change the Debian mirror if this one is too slow.
This list should help you:

http://www.debian.org/mirror/list.en.html

http://http.debian.net/debian, this one, seems really to be a betch. Every last post about 404 errors on this forum was by using this mirror.

Correct. See it as a feature, especially when you are still on Testing (currently Waldorf).

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

is all you need.

When Waldorf goes Stable, you could install some fancy update managers, they work like in Ubuntu, but why bother. You have the power and with it comes the responsibility.  devil

Re: gdebi not connecting to debian

Thank you all,

everything OK now, had multiple problems installing and running stuff, but you just have to use "older" packages and things work out of the box (but I don't know how completely new linux users would manage this...).

As far as the last post: ever since i am off ubuntu, i really appreciate this approach to updating... and pure debian in general. Me happy.

have fun,
