Trouble updating repos in Sabayon 6 32bit [Solved]

Post by serenicom » Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:40

I am trying to update and add software to a S6, Gnome, 32bit desktop... Other threads about this seem old or related to driver issues. These are the steps I try:

1) Click on entrophy store
2) Message " The repositories listed below are configured but not available. They should be downloaded. ( shows below)
3) Click "download now"
4) Progress dialog appears showing:

Repository hasn't been downloaded yet.
Repository is not available. Cannot validate
!!! Please update your repositories now in order to remove this message!
Exception in thread Thread-5:

@@ Repositories synchronization ...

# Repository API: 2

5) Nothing happens after this, and attempt to upgrade or install leads me back to this point.

Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks for the link. It suggests running
# equo update
# equo update --force

This resulted in more error messages and requests to download the repositories. I skipped to the next part out of frustration and ran:
# equo install entropy sulfur equo --relaxed
# equo conf update

This seemed to run OK so I went back to:
# equo update
# equo update --force

The response was that everything was up to date. (I did not record the specific wording)

I then proceeded with the next steps:
# equo update
# equo upgrade --ask

This is running in the background at reasonable download speeds without error, so I seem to be back on track. I am not quite sure why, and the update is still running, but I seem OK so I shall mark this as solved and say thank you again

Regards to all, Phil S.
