repo broken
« on: July 26, 2018, 01:25:13 »
I am running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit
I have included this repo for a long time.
My repo entry is:
deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra

I do not have the src checked.

Today, I started getting errors when running apt-get update OR synaptic update.
Doing a wireshark and watching the repo interaction with SULDR it clearly shows errors.

What is going wrong?
thanks

I think this is due to a temporary routing error between your computer and the server.  It should clear soon on its own if it has not already.

... a standard screenshot on ubuntu cant be attached because it apparently is too large file size. My typical screen shot is between 200 and 300kb on my laptop.

Probably a bad cache file that isn't clearing due to the temporary network glitch.  Try purging the apt cache:
rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

I didn't wanted to create a new discussion, so I'm writing here, because as I can see the repo is broken or empty.
I have a old usb samsung scx 4521f. I've been using this repo for like forever. On a new system I added repo, installed keyring, but apt finds no packages. It finds no suldr-driver-4.00.39. Actually when I search with aptitude search suld, it finds only this installed keyring.

I see that my references to this repo are again failing....
I will try the rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* again.

The repository is up, but there may be some temporary network path issue reaching it from some locations.  If the issues persists in a day or two and clearing the cache does not solve it, reply here.

as a data point... I just ran an apt-get update and your relevant entries are failing as follows. I'm no expert on apt so I don't know whether this is expected or not:

W: Failed to fetch http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/dists/debian/extra/binary-amd64/Packages  Bad header line

When this error occurs with an otherwise apparently working repository or one that had been working, it pretty much always means some sort of network traffic error occurred.  The error should automatically clear quickly, but apt sometimes get stuck in some odd state.  Usually clearing the cache takes care of it, but obviously not this time.  Some other things you can try to force apt to find the repository again:
1. Change the "http" to "https" in the repository source line.  In some cases, it might be necessary to update the repository files, and then revert back to "http" to get it to work.
2. Comment out/deactivate (or delete) the bchemnet repository line, update apt, add the line back and update again.
3. If neither of the above works, it could be a persistent DNS or path resolution problem.  (However, I doubt this because if it was you would probably not be able to reach this forum.)  If know how, you can try changing the DNS servers being used by your computer/network, updating apt, and then changing the DNS servers back.
4. Wait 24 hours, clear the cache again, and repeat 1 or 2.

Thank you so much! Repo works, and the driver installed!
After applying your tips from point 1 and 2 aptitude told me, that the package apt-transport-https is not installed (and it should be). After installing the package and updating repos everything works fine.

The thing is that only  driver from your repo let me use scanner, I tried official samsung drivers and every tip from the internet. You saved me from using Windows just because of the printer. Once again thanks for your help, and for your hard work!
