Spelling mistake in sudo apt-get update reference

Post by jars121 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 8:31 am

G'day,

I'm trying to install Picoscope for my newly acquired 3203D. I'm getting a 404 when trying to run sudo apt-get update, which shows an error in the referenced link:

Code: Select all

https://labs.picotech.com/debian/dists/picocope/main/binary-amd64/Packages
Note the "/picocope/" is missing an 's'.

How can I successfully install the Packages file using the correct link?

Hi jars121,

Thank you for bringing to our attention. Our Development Team have been informed so hopefully this should be fixed soon.

Edit: Could you please try copying and pasting the following lines into the terminal window followed by <ENTER>, then try the update:

Code: Select all

sudo bash -c 'echo "deb http://labs.picotech.com/debian/ picoscope main" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/picoscope.list'

Code: Select all

wget -O - http://labs.picotech.com/debian/dists/picoscope/Release.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
Please note that in each case, the commands should be entered as a single line.

Regards,

My apologies for the delayed response, I made my post just before heading overseas for work.

I've entered in the two lines as recommended, but am still having issues running sudo apt-get update. The issue of "picoscope" being spelled as "picocope" remains.

Hi jars121,

No problem, hope you had a good trip :D

Try opening the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/picoscope.list and manually correcting the entry if it has been misspelt.

Hitesh,

Thank you very much :) I had a very productive and informative trip actually (South Korea)!

I've corrected the spelling mistake in the .list document as suggested, and have successfully installed PicoScope.

Thanks again,

Jamie
