First time on the forum.
Just tried running apt-get update and received the following error:
W: Failed to fetch http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu/dists/virtualmin-universal/Release Unable to find expected entry ‘main/binary-i386/Packages’ in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I am running Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS
Thanks for your input.
Sorry, Joe is doing some work on the repository to fix some issues, and inadvertently generated a new issue
He knows about that, and is working to fix it. Thanks for letting us know!
Any update on this? I’m trying to do a new install and it is stopping me.
Very sorry! I’ve asked Joe to speed up the fix on this.
In a pinch, and if you have enough RAM, you could do a 64 bit install… the 64 bit repo should be unaffected.
But this should be up and running soon!
It was the 64 bit version I was trying.
Adding [arch=amd64] to the sources list fixes it, but the installers overwrites this change
Hrm, that’s odd, as we weren’t seeing that issue on 64 bit in our testing.
However, Joe just redid all the repository metadata – can you try it again? (assuming you haven’t already gotten things installed using the workaround you mentioned)
Just done a fresh OS / Virtualmin install and is all looking good for me
I’m now able to check for updates as normal. I have a 64-bit system too, btw.
Ubuntu Linux 14.04.1 Webmin version 1.791 Virtualmin version 5.02.gpl Kernel and CPU Linux 3.13.0-85-generic on x86_64
Interesting that though the error message was about a file not being received, I found I could get it in browser and wget it just fine. Though it did not contain the phrase it was looking for.
Excellent, glad to hear it’s working now!
