SolydXK repository URL may be corrupt

I had to update some packages to prepare them to the server migration I’m currently working on. Most of the changes are made in the solydxk-system package which will change the SolydXK repository URL in /etc/apt/sources.list to use the new server.

Unfortunately, the rewrite did not go well with the previous adaptation of solydxk-system. Some users reported that the URL contained “http://https://” which, of course, will not function. It is fixed in the solydxk-system version I uploaded today. However, users that already have that wrong URL need to adjust their sources.list file manually.

If you get 404 errors while updating your system you can follow these steps in a terminal:

  • apt sources
  • Change the SolydXK URL to:
    deb https://repository.solydxk.nl solydxk-9 main upstream import
    or for the Enthusiast’s Editions:
    deb https://repository.solydxk.nl solydxk-10 main upstream import
  • Save with: Ctrl-X
  • apt update
