Unable to update Expedition "expedition-updates/ Release' does not have a Release file"

L1 Bithead

Currently have expedition installed and running.

on "sudo apt-get update" I receive the message below.


W: The repository 'https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com expedition-updates/ Release' does not have a Release file.

N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.


I was unable to find any previous threads concerning this issue.


Hello, the link you included in the last post, just seems to link back to this same thread.  I've tried updating the repository following these directions (Editing the repo list at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ex-repo.list to include

deb [trusted=yes] https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com/ expedition-updates/)

but, I still have the same issue that I described earlier.  This happens in both my lab and prod installs of expedition



Make sure all of your existing repos are trusted as some of the files may not have updated.

Run this: sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/partial  The folder has permission issues of some sort, then run sudo apt-get update again after deleting the folder.

This fixed my problem.  Thank you!
