No update to 4.0 possible


I have a Pi with the Piaware SD Image, but no update to 4.0 is possible

 Feeder Check-In: vor ein paar Sekunden
Feeder-Typ: PiAware (SD Card) 3.8.1
Feeder Mode: Mode-S (1090 MHz)
Multilateration (MLAT): Supported / Enabled (synchronized with 371 nearby receivers)

ssh into the pi says no update is avaliable:

What does apt-cache policy piaware-release say?

(It looks like you have customized your sdcard image quite a bit, so a “simple” upgrade may not be possible)

apt-cache policy piaware-release
  Installiert:           3.8.1
  Installationskandidat: 3.8.1
 *** 3.8.1 100
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Strange, it is just not seeing the updated packages at all. I wonder if there is a transparent proxy causing problems.

on my site, i have no proxy… :frowning:

That all looks fine. I don’t know why it doesn’t see the updated package list. Try the update once more?

If that fails my next suggestion would be to rm /var/lib/apt/lists/flightaware.com.* to force the package list to be re-downloaded, and try again.

much better…

 rm /var/lib/apt/lists/flightaware.com*

without . before * works :slight_smile:
