Hello,

I have some Ionics Sheevaplug computer, and I can't add package, because the command : apt-get update
generate error 404 not found for the Lenny package...

And when I go to the debian website, I can't found any reference to Lenny. There is now only stable and squeeze.

So, I update my sources.list and change all lenny reference to stable. And I comment volatile and Orion line. Now, I have only
these lines:


deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main

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

The apt-get update is working fine.

But I don't test the apt-get upgrade. Is someone had the same problem and try to update to this version.

I can see on internet some people who change lenny to squeeze. But I would prefer a stable version.

Thanks

squeeze is the stable version now.

This is from the README file at http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/dists/

stable, or squeeze         - the released Debian 6.0.4

Hello

ok, I changed from Lenny to Squeeze by these actions under root user:

update /etc/apt/sources.list
     deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
     deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

update apt
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update

upgrade to new version
    apt-get dist-upgrade

be sure to have enough space to install new version.

After this update, dhcp configuration change. In Lenny, my dhclient.conf file was in /etc/dhcp3. In Squeeze, it is in /etc/dhcp.

Long live the Sheevaplug Shocked)

Hi,

Thank you for your post, I am not great at maintaining my linux server and wsa baffled when I was getting 404 errors the other day.

I changed my sources.list to your suggestion (included the squeeze sources and commented out everything else). When I do 'apt-get update' it looks like everything is ok at first but then it somehow tried using the old lenny sources. I dont understand why because I've commented them all out. Needless to say it wont update. Below is the output, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

sorry for the late answer. I hope you found a solution. If not, perhaps you can use these commands:
apt-get clean
apt-get autoclean
apt-get update

Regards
