tryin to use apt-get to upgrade after security breach fails
Last modified: 2008-09-19 04:08:13 EDT
After the security breach, apt-get fails miserably. Every package that apt-get tries to download from
fails with http 404 errors.
Yum seems to work OK.
Oh... I forgot to mention... This happens with Fedora 9 and 8
Even after apt-get update? Then please add some more of the error output, e.g. the 404 errors will be accompanied by the missing URLs.
I've attached a couple of files that contain the output of "apt-get update" and "apt-get -fd dist-upgrade"
As you can see, the output from the update is fine. The output from dist-upgrade shows problems.

Oh.. one other thing. The output is similar for Fedora 9 x86_64, Fedora 9 i386 and Fedora 8 i386.
Where did the newkey config came from? I'm just adding it to the repo.
I followed the instructions provided at
Then used the examples provided from the new fedora.repo etc to reconfigure the fedora.list etc files to conform to the new locations
This was added to fedora-updates.list
repomd http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/ fedora/linux/updates/9/x86_64.newkey/
All the above on one line (of course). The reason I have the space between pub and fedora is so that I can create a unique identifier in the preferences file
Pin: release c=fedora-linux-updates-9-x86_64.newkey
This change of locations needs to be made for updates in fedora-updates.list and and fedora.list
fedora-package-config-apt-9-3.transitional, fedora-package-config-smart-9-13.0.2.transitional has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
fedora-package-config-apt-8-2.transitional, fedora-package-config-smart-8-12.0.2.transitional has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Seems to be fixed. Files are now being downloaded.
