  • Need help updating Mono

    Following the sticky instructions. After adding the new repositories, I get this error:

    apt update

    N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

    Help please!

    Thanks,

    Not sure I know what to tell you. Nothing in those instructions said anything about configuring a package source to be from a CD-ROM. Before trying to upgrade Mono, have you done any previous updating of packages or sources? In other words, did this work before?

      Also it looks like you still have the old raspbian repository in your list:

      "N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-amd64/Packages' as repository 'https://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian stable-raspbianjessie InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'amd64'"

      Check your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official-stable.list file and see if it has two entries in it (the old raspbian one and the new debian one). If it does (or if it just has the raspbian one in it), delete that file then try going through those instructions again. (All you're really doing with those is adding an entry to that file so that when you do get "apt update" to work, it will add the packages from that location into your catalog instead of the old ones.)

        Hang on.... The Mono update instruction information has changed <recently?> ...

        So trying to refer back to what I did is impossible now (except for the line I posted above that missed the dirmngr package!).

        So now, should I undo the steps I did to add the <bad> repository packages first?

        and then which Unbuntu version 14.04, 16.04 or 18.04 instructions should I use for Debian v9.5 ???

        [Edit]

        Duh! I now see the 'Debian' tab on that page! What a numpty!

        [Edit]

        Thanks for help,

          Whew! Glad to see you got past that part - hope turning on the plugin works smoothly from the start.

            If going to the 5.x branch, be sure to pin yourself to 5.0.1 as later releases break VB/ASP and you won't be able to use plugins or extensions that are aspx based.

            Bug currently open with Mono about this: https://github.com/mono/mono/issues/9883

              OK, still got the issue with the mono package update, so posted a question on Stack Overflow for help...

              In the meantime, before I try the update again, I should change my repository 'add to the list of packages' command to be this (when logged in as root):
              echo "deb https://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian stable-stretch/snapshots/5.0.1 main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official-stable.list
              Is that correct? Just checking, before I get myself into EVEN more trouble...

              Thanks,

                OK, still no useful advice from Stack Overflow.... https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...ase-file-on-cd

                Any ideas?

                  I would edit that mono source list file in your etc apt directory (as root) and make sure the only thing in there is the one you want (5.0.1, per the above above). Remove any other lines referencing raspbian or CD-ROM, etc.

                    This is the ONLY line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official-stable.list

                    deb https://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian stable-stretch/snapshots/5.0.1/ main

                    What now?

                        In the above I spotted a reference to 'jessie' instead of stretch, so changed it to 'stretch'. That OK?

                          Couple things

                          1) If you are still getting errors referring to "cdrom", comment out that 2nd entry in /etc/apt/sources.list (deb cdrom: ....)

                          2) What is in the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teamviewer.list ? If you aren't sure about any of the entries or are getting errors that might be from these entries, try commenting them out.

                          3) Locking the update to mono 5.0.1 is only necessary if you need ASPX functionality. The problem you are having with that is that the snapshots in that particular repository don't go back that far. See https://download.mono-project.com/re...tch/snapshots/. Earliest available is 5.2.0.

                          Try changing the entry in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official-stable.list to "stable/snapshots/5.0.1". That'll get you here: https://download.mono-project.com/re...ble/snapshots/ which go back much further.

                          4) That change from jessie to stretch is probably a don't care as is appears it may be redundant. If it give you issues, try commenting it out.

                            Thank you - I was too numpty to realize this! DONE!

                            I changed it to stretch just in case...

                            So all is good. Mono 5.0.1.1 is now running, and more importantly I have my Honeywell WiFi thermostat plugin working great!

                            Many thanks,
