Broken Repo information file for Ubuntu 16.04

Hi there,
when downloading the proper Package file from your repository for Ubuntu 16.04, the file seems to be broken - I cannot uncompress it properly:
Ubuntu 16.04 x86_64 repo at https://apt.octopus.com/dists/stretch/main/binary-amd64
Found deb repo - https://apt.octopus.com/dists/stretch/main/binary-amd64/Packages.bz2

Please check and fix this, if possible.

Best regards, Tobias

Good morning Tobias,

Thankyou so much for getting in touch and pointing out the broken link.

I have sent this ticket to the team who manages the repositories and they should be able to get this fixed.

I will update you when it is fixed but in the meantime please reach out if you have any further issues or enquiries.

Kind Regards,

Clare Martin

Hi Tobias,

Our engineers have gotten back to us and confirmed that they are able to retrieve and unzip the Tentacle package without issue on Ubuntu 16.04.

The process our engineers took from inside a ubuntu 16.04 docker container:

# Retrieve Package:
sudo apt install wget
wget https://apt.octopus.com/dists/stretch/main/binary-amd64/Packages.bz2 

#Unzip Package
sudo apt install bzip2
bzip2 -dk Packages.bz2
cat Packages

Could you please confirm if their process works for you? Is it possible that the ‘Packages.bz2’ was missing from the original wget command?

Happy to explore this further if it’s still not working for you. Let me know how you get on or if there was a specific goal you had in mind!

Best Regards,

Hi Finnian,

thank you for getting back to me.

Yesterday, the download stopped for different machines on our side at around 23kB, today it seems to finish the download at 28kB and the repo file works fine again, so I can confirm it’s fine now.

Whatever the problem was, it’s gone now and we’re fine! Thanks a lot for whoever fixed this… :blush:

Please close this thread, we’re good to go again!

Best regards,

Tobias
