RESOLVED Apt update and OSMC update errors

Hi, on my Vero 4k, using ‘My OSMC’ to update I get an error (June update is installed).
So I did SSH into the Vero 4k and did try to update via ‘apt’ and did get this:

root@osmc:/home/osmc# apt update
Ign:2 … stretch/updates InRelease
Ign:3 … stretch InRelease
Hit:4 … stretch-updates InRelease
Hit:5 … stretch Release
Hit:1 … stretch InRelease
Err:6 stretch/updates Release
Something wicked happened resolving ‘’ (-5 - No address associated with hostname)
Reading package lists… Done
E: The repository ‘ stretch/updates 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.

Listing of /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb … stretch main contrib non-free

deb … stretch-updates main contrib non-free

deb … stretch/updates main contrib non-free

deb … stretch main

It looks fine to me, but it gives an error every time…
(I did exchange ‘http(s)://’ with ‘…’ to be able to post).



I’m having no issues here with here, please try temporarily changing dns servers used (try for example.)

and try issuing sudo apt-get update.

I think MyOSMC update will show an error if there are no osmc packages to update, so being as you are on the june; I think this is to be expected. I’m just slightly concerned you are not getting security updates from debian.

Thanks Tom.

Hi Tom,

my provider has some issues so it seems. A few hours later the DNS problems seemed to be ‘all over the net’, but it isn’t really the case there are time-outs in my connection, resulting in dns errors, pages not loading in time and so on.

To this forum it is a resolved problem.
