19.10 download problem

Hi Pallebone,

An interim step has me wanting.

The edit screen is unpopulated. I can't fin.d how to populate it - how?

When I save the edit screen set on 'Manual' instead of Automatic (DHCP), what supersizes can I expect with networking?

I am doing my 18.04.3 in parallel. What is the equivalent of the command

echo "deb https://deb.etcher.io stable etcher" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list],

for 18.04?

Apologies, I overlooked what you might set there. Instead of 'manual' set 'Automatic (DHCP) addresses only' and then you will not need to fill in any ip settings, and only the DNS servers section will need to be filled in with the 8.8.8.8.

Hopefully the command:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 379CE192D401AB6

Will work after that.
I believe you already ran
echo "deb https://deb.etcher.io stable etcher" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list
so you dont need to run that again.

Send me a screenshot of your network settings page after changin the above so I can check you did it correctly.

Redid the original complete procedure on a reload from before any changes + add DNS 8.8.8.8. .

Connection Information before change.

or

The only record I have of the original DNS is on the information record. but it is the same before and after [192.168.1.1[. It does not appear to have changed???

Information after adding DNS

or

Not sure if it should not be [8.8.8.8] not [8.8.8.8.]

Terminal output.

Just my luck failed again.

The MS-7979 is a persistent hangover from my Win7 days. Maybe the CMOS is to blame. MS is pain... I'd like to be rid of.

Should just be 8.8.8.8 (no dot on the end) and you need to reboot afterwards for the settings to change or stop and start the networking. I will try later today to reproduce the issue as I am not at my PC till later, and reply back when I have tested again.

Try setting it like this and using the "enable networking" after changing it, and then "enable networking" again to turn it back on. Once you have done that is the DNS 8.8.8.8 as per my screenshot?

PALLEBONE

Bingo. Tomorrow when I do a normal update I'll know whether the update downloads as per usual or if the error message intervenes [could not download repository information - check your internet connection]

Cool glad it is fixed.

PALLEBONE

All the update issues I've noticed appear fixed.

The update using the update icon went through without any error messages this morning.

Thank you for enduring my slow and basic learning pace.

PALLEBONE

All the download issues I've noticed appear solved. The system update using the 'Update' icon] went smoothly today with no error messages.

Thank your for enduring ny elementary learning ,rate.

Morning,

Received an anonymous 'download' when I turned on this morning [2020/02/24 +- 05h50] -ADSL modem went madly for maybe 10 seconds. Hope it it was an 'official' deposit. The update is back to faulty.

The DNS changes [8.8.8.8] appear in place.

Will I need to add the DNS 8.8.8.8 when 20.04 is released as the DNS anomaly appears hardware related?

Have a good day.

Hi,

In order to best answer your question, can you clarify what you mean by "Received an anonymous 'download' when I turned on this morning"?

Pete

I am familiar with the startup time once the password has been filled in and enter is pressed. There was a delay of a few seconds - maybe 7 or 8 - before anything appeared on the screen. During this blanked period there was a rapid flashing of the LED on the modem indicating 'download in progress'. T,hat lasted maybe 10 seconds after which the screen came to life normally.

This delay and download on startup is not normal. However, as 19.10 was/is 'work in progress' I ignored it - until I ran the update (my normal procedure) which brought up the error message [already sent] the reason for it appearing HAVING BEEN FIXED a week ago with Pallebone's help.

I do have a Clonezilla image from last Friday which I can reload but I don't want to mess up any testing Mate might be doing in the background

Hi xaire,

I am not sure why this happened. Hopefully it does not happen again, but I cant comment as to why it did as its beyond my technical expertise.

Pete

Hi there,

Something you can answer. I've loaded Ether successfully, it even shows in Boutique as ready run. But I cant run it. I've tried all combinations of my guess at it's name in Terminal to run it with no success.

How can I run it?

If I do an update through terminal I still hit an error on Etcher.

If you type:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list

Can you post the output here for me to review?

Morning,

Thank you,

Apparently this is a know problem as of 7 hours ago on the project page for etcher.

You can follow the status of this bug here:

You can also comment and tell them you have the same problem in the hope they fix it faster. Once they fix and close the bug this will no longer happen.

Pallebone

This morning The faulty Etcher was fixed.

sudo apt update went through without errors.

To get Etcher to work had to

Remove it with Synaptic. [ suspect not 'entirely' as claimed as the reinstall through boutique was very rapid]

The download error message in software update also disappeared this morning.

Sounds like a temporary problem that is most likely being resolved and not an issue your side. I would wait a day and try again.
