Is the expedition repository currently available?

 

I get the same error with packages unavailable

root@expedition:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# apt-get install expedition-beta
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package expedition-beta

 

I have checked the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ex-repo.list and it contains the correct entry.

I have run apt-get update

I can resolve conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com

I am not running a proxy

 

I am running the 32bit version of Ubuntu 16:04 I tried the AMD 64 bit version but it would not install, I am running esxi on Intel hardware.

 

Any ideas?

The repository is available (just tested).

 

In case you would get a prior message stating issues in the temporary folder for "apt", something like

Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/...

Feel confident to delete the content inside the folder via a 

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/*

 And try to get the updated list of packages again

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install expedition-beta

Remember it is a good practise to afterwards remove unused installer packages

sudo apt-get autoremove

Hello,

I'm still facing similar problems to those listed.

When I run sudo apt-get update, I get a message saying ''The repository 'https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com expedition-updates/ Release' does not have a release file''

 

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.6 in VirtualBox.

Please ignore this error message and continue to issue $sudo apt-get install expedition-beta

I tried that. It still says ‘Unable to locate package expedition-beta’

Hello @MartinE 

 

Can you please verify from your ubuntu VM can access to https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com/expedition-updates/expedition_1.1.75.all.deb , make sure it's not blocked by firewalls .

Hi,

The VM can reach that site without any issues.

I decided to follow the advise in an earlier comment - did a clean install using the AMD64 ISO image.

I now have it running without issues.
