Re: Unable to upgrade NSLU2 running debian

Hi Bob,

I did in fact run apt-get update first, and apt-get upgrade fails with
the same errors as dist-upgrade.
I usually try to upgrade it once a month.

# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# deb http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ etch main

deb http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ etch main
deb-src http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ etch main

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main

I saw your post on the other list but was unsure what your problem is.

Firstly, please confirm that you did an apt-get update before the
apt-get dist-upgrade and secondly post the contents of your
/etc/apt/sources.list file.

I am also wondering why a dist-upgrade rather than just an upgrade,
although I doubt if that is anything to do with your problem.

I run etch/arm on one NSLU2 and lenny/armel on another and upgrade both
with few problems so hopefully this is fixable.

That openssh-blacklist package dates back to last May.  Presumably you
have not done an update/upgrade for a long time?
