OMV 1.18 CRON-APT Error: The value 'stable' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

  • I got an email report this morning saying this:

    It looks like the same issue as this thread, but since the OMV release is different, I thought it would be better to have another dedicated thread.


    I am guessing this issue has to do with the release of Jessie which is the new stable as of yesterday. I have replaced "stable" with "wheezy" in the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99openmediavault-release and now omv-update command doesn't show any issue.


    Does anyone else got this problem?


    edit
    See here for the solution:

    By the way, this is only affects systems upgraded from 0.5. Just remove apt.conf rm -f /etc/apt/apt.conf and it should be fine. The file isn't used anymore.

  • Yes, same problem here. Solved it the same way as you did. After changing the value to "wheezy" everything updated as normal. Would like to know if the solution is correct though and why that is happening.

  • Your changes are correct. The reason it happens is because of the jessie release. @votdev should be able to fix this.

  • Hi,


    I have had the same problem.
    I had to replace "stable" with "wheezy" in the different file: /etc/apt/apt.conf


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    OMV 1.18 Kralizec 64-bit | 3.16 backport kernel | omv-extras.org 1.17

  • It should really be replaced everywhere in apt config files.

    My OMV install was a clean install of 1.0, but I'm getting this same error. I don't have the /etc/apt/apt.conf file.

  • My OMV is also a clean install of 1.0. Same Error here


    SystemError: E:The value 'stable' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

  • What is the output of: grep -r "stable" /etc/apt/*

  • I've got the same - running the command above I get:


    /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99openmediavault-release:APT::Default-Release "stable";


    I'm on version 1.18


    ETA - thought I'd post it here but there's always the potential for me not understanding this stuff! Was a clean install of 1.0 IIRC

  • I don't have that file on any of my systems either.


    As root:
    mv /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99openmediavault-release /root/
    apt-get update


    If no errors, delete the file:
    rm /root/99openmediavault-release

  • You can delete that file (/etc/apt/apt.conf). It is not needed.

    Thanks - done - will see if the e-mail error warnings disappear!


    6 updates have now appeared in my web gui update list, which weren't available earlier

  • :thumbsup:

    This is the right solution for me !
    TXS :)

    Worked for me : rm -f /etc/apt/apt.conf




    From mail I had this warning :

    From the webinterface, no updates were available


    I guess that only using SSH can fix it the problem ?

  • I think I have the same problem. Trying to update OMV via web-gui its stucked at the point "Reading state information".


    Then I tried all above mentioned steps. But on my OMV i did not have the file "/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99openmediavault-release" or "/etc/apt/apt.conf".


    The ouput of "

    Code
    grep -r "stable" /etc/apt/*

    "


    is:


    Code
    /etc/apt/sources.list:deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/omv-extras-org-kralizec.list:deb http://www.greyhole.net/releases/deb stable main


    How could I solve this?


    Thanks!!
