Fatal error in downloading the database update

Post#1 by oreo » 15 Jul 2015, 01:33

I have gotten this error repeatedly with both the 64 and 32 bit versions of Porteus 3.1. The text of the error is below.

Also, on this computer (an Asus X200M), running Porteus Chrome crashes. It starts with the wiggly icon, but then I find that I am logged out and it asks me for my password.
On a more powerful computer using the same flashdisk, Chrome runs fine. However I still got the same database update error.


sh-4.2# usm -u all
Starting alien database update
Downloading: vercheck.txt DONE
Downloading: CHECKSUMS.md5.gz DONE
Downloading: MANIFEST.bz2 DONE
Downloading: PACKAGES.TXT.gz DONE
Downloading: LIBS.TXT.gz DONE

gzip: /var/usm/alien/CHECKSUMS.md5.gz: unexpected end of file


==============================================================================
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
==============================================================================
One or more errors occurred while usm was running:

FATAL ERROR!
usm update_database 226
Could not decompress: CHECKSUMS.md5.gz

==============================================================================
sh-4.2#

What can I do to overcome this?

Try later, use Porteus Fresh Boot Mode.
