wrong repository link in tutorial

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

wrong repository link in tutorial

Postby Hemoaloe » Thu Dec 06, 2018 9:14 am

Hi all,

I am following the linux tutorial for using the terminal to connect.

I keep getting "cannot open release file" error

Code: Select all

root@tester:~# apt-get update && apt-get install openvpn
Ign:2 http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable/dists tara InRelease     
Err:6 http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable/dists tara Release       
  404  Not Found [IP: 52.52.118.245 80]
Reading package lists... Done                                                 
E: The repository 'http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable/dists tara Release' does not 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.
root@tester:~#


I am using the latest LinuxMint.

Can someone assist me in figuring out which repository will work for me?

Regards

@OP

Try this:

Code: Select all

sudo -s
wget -O - https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo-public.gpg|apt-key add -
echo "deb http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable bionic main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvpn-aptrepo.list
apt-get update && apt-get install openvpn
exit


Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu and the latest Ubuntu is Bionic Beaver. Packages like OpenVPN are packaged for the base system rather than the extras added on by respins such as Mint or Kubuntu. :)
