Mon Jul 23, 2018 3:12 am

After I installed new version of raspbian i tried to upgrade my system and there was en error:
The repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian stretch Release' does no longer have a Release file.

I'm encountering the same problem. Specifically, attempting 'apt-get update' produced the following errors:

E: The repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian stretch Release' does no longer have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

Trying it again a couple of times seems to have resulted in the error going away. Just a transient error, perhaps? It'd be nice to know what caused it though, and if this was something that was fixed at the repository end, rather than apt-get just dropped to a lower level of security to get around it.

I had that error yesterday, though I'm sure elsewhere in the output it indicated that the site was unreachable (or some such). I take it something like this happens (I don't know the inner workings of apt but a rough guess) :-
In times of high load apt might see the site at first and assume the repo is available but then a subsequent request to get the Release file fails because the server is too busy, this causes apt to assume the repo is invalid and so it gives up.

Usually trying again later will work (may take a few attempts).

Probably just a little networking blip.
BTW: was the message you posted all you got?

I just had the same message, but before that there was a clear message 'service unavailable' with an IP address:

Running update again solved the problem

That will be what it said, I knew gist of it but couldn't remember off the top of my head the exact phrase apt used.

This is still hapenning. I just attempted to install some build utils and got (same host ip)

Need to get 853 kB/5,103 kB of archives.
After this operation, 16.6 MB of additional disk space will be used.

I then cut and paste the URL straight out of the terminal in to firefox on windows and the file loaded. Thinking it was pi wierdness I found this thread which said several retries later the error went away. I tried again on the pi, and all good. Some archive.raspberrypi.org maintainers might need to look at the server logs to see whats up.

Quite possibly its high server load on their side and the host cant keep up....

If I run a apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade across my fifteen Raspberries I'll see that same error on about three of them.

It looks like a bug in some web workload balancer / caching system somewhere out in the wild of the internets because one minute after a failure it works perfectly normally.

I'm seeing the same error on one Raspberry Pi 3 and one Raspberry Pi 3 B+, both running Raspbian Stretch. I was getting the 503 error message, but now the Release file doesn't even look to be attempted. I also haven't gotten any updates in a few weeks, which seems unusual.
