update problem

Sat Mar 05, 2016 9:25 pm

So I haven't been using my pi for sometime. I wanted to do the usual update and upgrade and this happened:
Any suggestions on how to fix it.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
Err http://raspberrypi.collabora.com wheezy Release.gpg
  Temporary failure resolving 'raspberrypi.collabora.com'
Err http://archive.raspberrypi.org wheezy Release.gpg
  Temporary failure resolving 'archive.raspberrypi.org'
Err http://repository.wolfram.com stable Release.gpg

Err http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org wheezy Release.gpg

My first guess is to double check your network connection. Try to ping the server/google

A number of problems here.

Yes, it looks like there's a network problem, if it couldn't resolve the raspbian.org repo. Collabora repo hasn't been included in the standard image for quite a long time. You can safely remove it.

Unrelated to your problem, but consider switching to jessie. Wheezy is no longer supported (by us).

Long term solution is indeed to move to Jessie.

In the mean time, the terminal incantation:

Code: Select all

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/collabora.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/collabora.list.disabled
...will allow Wheezy updates to continue. For example, python-imaging recently received an update on Wheezy.

The Collabora repo was for LibreOffice, I believe. I think this is now in the mainstream repo anyway, even on Wheezy, so disabling the Collabora repo on Wheezy should make no difference. However if someone with more time than me could check, that would be much appreciated.

I had the same problem on Saturday, ignored it ran upgrade and ended up with a dead system - just the green led flashing a few times in sequence. I did not spend time investigating just reformatted and installed the lasted Jessie. Probably also had it on another Pi a couple of weeks ago but there were some other problems so did not recognize the significance.

I would suggest the strong advice here is that if you have a working Wheezy leave alone don't try to update unless you have everything backed up
