USM H E L P

Post#1 by willard » 13 Jun 2016, 17:32

RE: ver 3.1, 32 bit, EXT4 partition
Hi,
USM GUI traps 'Missing database files.' error, pointing to slacky repo:

Code: Select all

usm -u all
sh-4.2# usm -u all
alien was updated 3112 seconds ago. Skipping.
salix was updated 3103 seconds ago. Skipping.
 Starting slacky 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/slacky/CHECKSUMS.md5.gz: unexpected end of file
          

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

FATAL ERROR!
usm update_database 270
Could not decompress: CHECKSUMS.md5.gz

==============================================================================
sh-4.2#
[/code]
Also, CLI USM traps this problem:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sudo usm -u slacky
Password:

 You need the following programs to continue:  
installpkg
removepkg
guest@porteus:~$ 
A search for these modules finds nothing!

This problem is not unique to a single micro, any HELP please??
thx

Hi,
Now down to the 'unexpected end of file' hiccup:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ PATH+=:/sbin
guest@porteus:~$ sudo usm -u slacky
Password:

Downloading: vercheck.txt  DONE

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

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

 ============================================================================== 
guest@porteus:~$ 

Problem appears intermittantly.

^ Looks like the out of sync problem. Or try another mirror for slacky.
