Update error - The repository does no longer have a Release file

#1

Hi,

during the update I’m getting the following error. Do I need to update my “sources.list”?

E: The repository 'http://apt.osmc.tv 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.

Thanks
Fabian

How does your sources.list look like?
Should be deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch main

My sources.list looks like this:

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch main

That looks right. Looking at your original error log there seems to be an issue to establish a secure connection. How to you try to update?

Seems you have a DNS issue.

Yes, this of course an DNS issue:

But what’s going wronge here:

Hi,

I think you are getting this error, due to dns issue that @fzinken advised about.

I suggest changing your dns servers via MyOSMC to perhaps googles (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4), and see if that resolves the issue.

Thanks Tom.

It was a DNS issue from the provider. The CNAME has no IP assigned. But it’s fixed now.
