cant apt upgrade, have tried fixes
« on: April 09, 2020, 05:28:39 am »
hey im going through the resources on updating my debian install from planet computers guide and the wiki/ forums. however there are still a few niggling issues.

1 cant edit mac address in hexedit, it says read only. so wifi settings arent remembered.

2 calls dont work (no audio) - maybe fixed with apt upgrade but...

3 cant do apt upgrade because of common libreoffice problem. ive tried multiple documented fixes. screenshot of issue attatched.

Thanks

have you try this ?

TUTORIAL :
[3.5.1] ADD REPOSITORY ARCHIVE KEY  ( if system is brocken )  
&
[3.5.2] LOCALE  


This solve the libreoffice problem & update broken.
And your locales is not set (top of your screenshot)

you have to be root (admin) to do that.

enter :
sudo -s
< your password>

maybe this problem and your wifi problem (other thread) is because you have missed one part of the install because you were not root.
maybe reflash your gemini and go to the tutorial and follow it very carrefully.

got it to work: (where it says script.slc its actually script.xlc)

sudo dpkg-divert --list
sudo dpkg-divert --remove /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/dialog.xlc
<repeat for script.slc>

<<  cant edit mac address in hexedit, it says read only. so wifi settings arent remembered. >>

the "read only" problem is because you are not root when you edit a file system.

the fix was from this thread: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...mp;#entry292144
