Unable to install any packages



  • As of yesterday when I updated to 2.1.5 I can no longer install any packages!  They all fail while installing "additional components" if they even get that far - a fair number of packages seem to fail while trying to download the package from the server:

    Beginning package installation for suricata .
    Downloading package configuration file… done.
    Saving updated package information... done.

    done.
    Failed to install package.

    Installation halted.

    System logs:
    Aug 29 10:23:57 php: /pkg_mgr_install.php: Beginning package installation for suricata . (nothing follows)

    I finally got the install to finish but still didn't have it in the GUI -- then this...

    If they do install the GUI XML files don't seem to get installed and often the package files when I try to just reinstall the GUI side:
    --From re-installing GUI for Suricata--

  • OK well things are working correctly again as of yesterday afternoon and are still working today.  Server must have been having some connectivity errors.



  • I'm having exactly the same problem, only mine isn't going away :-(

    How can I fix this?

    @T5RZ8:

    How can I fix this?

    Starting tons of duplicate threads about the same certainly won't fix it.
