omv-update failing

  • I set up a new OMV 5 instance a few weeks ago, then because I moved had to turn it off for a while. Yesterday, I plugged everything back up and all seems to work fine, except it won't update. I've tried omv-update and apt-get update - nothing works.

    It seems to not be able to resolve the HTTP requests. I've checked /etc/apt/sources.list for any irregularities, but all seemed fine.

    Here is the output of running apt-get udpate:

    Would appreciate any tips on how to resolve this. Thanks!

  • You have no functional DNS resolver. Verify by running these commands in the shell:


    If you have working DNS you will get echo replies from If not you have no working DNS and/or no internet connection.


    I you get echo replies you have a working internet connection. If you don't get replies you have no internet connectivity.

    If the first test fails but the second one passes, examine the file /etc/resolv.conf and see if you have any nameservers in it. If not add (temporarily).

    Google is your friend and Bob's your uncle!
