SOLVED Is Cloudron not installing for anyone?


  • I thought it was just yesterday, but it can't find these packages today either. Is this happening to anyone else?

    Could not install software-properties-common (for add-apt-repository below).

    Those packages don't exist...what? This can't be just me then.


  • check other repos, sometimes the sync process of one fails and has missing data until the next sync.


  • @lonk might sound stupid but can you ping any internet address from where you are ?
    it feels like your box does not have internet access ?

    if it's not that changing source repo will definitely fix this

    Well, I'd have to modify the Cloudron install script. This is running on a freshly installed Ubuntu 18.04 VPS: ./cloudron-setup - but that means I just have to wait for them to re-sync in order to install unless I wanna modify the cloudron-setup script.

    Yup, it has full internet access (it's a VPS), and I downloaded Cloudron's setup script from it directly, but it rightfully can't find those packages. I'm not well versed in Ubuntu, but doesn't ./cloudron-setup decide the repo?

    @lonk You can just try sudo apt update. Does that work?

    Close, just needed to add a -get to that,apt-get update fixed everything. I've just never had to do that before. But now I'll know what to do for next time! ☺

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    @lonk on which VPS provider did this happen?


  • @lonk apt-get has been deprecated for a while. So it sounds like you have an old install or some other issue missing the initial updates.

    apt-get has not been deprecated. It's still the recommended way for everything that needs scripting / automation.

    And personally, on a RaspberryOS install, it often happens to me that apt messes up the repo updates somehow, and apt-get just breezes through, no problem. I have no idea why 🤷


  • @mehdi you're right, my poor choice of words..

    apt is a binary that can call libapt-pkg libraries and provides a subset of interactive options and commands for apt-get/cache by default.

    apt-get is not limited to those options.
