Type: Problem report
Resolution: Hardware failure
Affects Version/s: 4.4.7
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Installation (I)
Environment:GNU Linux (debian buster)
Steps to reproduce:
- download instalation deb package from download web page and install it.
- run apt update
error message saying "repo...contains no Release file..."
Release file can be downloaded and subsequent installation works.
If i view the repo directora in a browser and click on the release file, i get an "application/octet-strem" in response, this is likely the cause for the failure. Trying to access a Release file from ftp.debian.org repo, this is opened in the browser, so it is not octet-stream. I guess this is a server or encoding issue, please check.
