No Rsync?


I was planning to copy a large set of files on to a HD attached to Vero 4K+ using Rsync. But the debian build doesn’t have Rsync to install using
sudo apt-get install rysnc

Rsync is already installed on OSMC

osmc@osmc-vero4k:~$ which rsync
osmc@osmc-vero4k:~$ dpkg -l | grep rsync
ii  rsync                                 3.1.3-6                             armhf        fast, versatile, remote (and local) file-copying tool

Ah, ok.

Though when I type
rysnc --version
-bash: rsync: command not found

Which is same error when I try to rynsc into osmc from my PC

(I’m still learning linux so probably a dumb error on my part)

Where did you type that?
Did you connect to the Vero via SSH?

Or are you typing that on your local machine? Which OS?

Yes, ssh into vero (from a MX Linux PC).

And when I use the which and dpkg commands, no output appears

osmc@osmc-ss:~$ rsync --version
-bash: rsync: command not found
osmc@osmc-ss:~$ which rsync
osmc@osmc-ss:~$ dpkg -l | grep rsync

can you post the output of
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rsync

osmc@osmc-ss:~$ sudo apt-get update

Rsync is not installed on my vero4k, which was last installed in March 2018, but is installed on my Pi3, which was last installed in October 2020.

Typo. It’s rsync.
