Error messages when running apt-get update

Can anyone give me a hand with the following. I've found a couple of threads with similar but not identical problems and their solutions haven't worked. When running sudo apt-get update I get the following error messages: Last login: Wed Sep 18 14:22:12 2019 from 174.205.9.217 Wi-Fi is currently blo...

Change Permissions on NTFS Formatted Router HDD

I have an external HDD attached to my router via USB. It's formatted as NTFS and auto-mounts to my raspberry pi. I use the pi as a plex server but right now I can't have the pi optimize anything because it cannot write to the drive. From what I can tell its something to do with the permissions but I...

Removing Installed Packages in Bulk

I have a 3B+ that is currently running headless and being used as a Plex Server. What I'd like to do is essentially remove the vast majority of pre-installed packages. Leaving basically only Plex, Teamviewer and VNC for remote access. I can't find a way to list only my installed packages so that I c...

New Folder Permissions

I have a 3B+ running as a Plex server and generally speaking everything works great. I also have a WD My Passport Pro Wireless that I use as a "portable server' since it can install Plex on it. The WD doesn't have the power to do transcoding so I optimize the files for Universal TV in order to easil...

Re: Cannot mount network share on boot

As an initial matter, the pi is connected via ethernet, if that makes a difference with the network not being up: I've tried editing the fstab file from: proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/mmcblk0p6 /boot vfat defaults 0 2 /dev/mmcblk0p7 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1 To proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /de...

Cannot mount network share on boot

I have tried multiple walkthroughs on adding lines to fstab and on editing rc.local but so far nothing I have tried works. Even tried it as a chrontab task at one point. I am trying to make it so that my raspberry pi mounts a folder from an external hard drive attached to my router's USB port (so no...

USB Booting Question

I've searched through the topics and I can't seem to find a simply answer to this issue. If someone knows a thread that answers it please direct me. I have a Model 3b+ with a powered 1TB external HDD attached. I'd like to have the pi boot from that drive since my understanding is that it will give b...
