Helium: problem installing 'bunsen-meta-packaging'

It probably isn't worth a lot of effort, since BL Helium is about to be superceded by Lithium, but I'm putting this here for reference.

From this thread

I'm not sure what the cause of the message shown was; perhaps we should install our own released isos more often to see if something broke in the meantime. If somebody has a minute and could try to reproduce? It looks like OP launched the install from within the live session.

I installed helium-5-amd64.hybrid.iso in a qemu/kvm VM, and ran the initial update/upgrade, and exited the terminal.

sudo apt-get install bunsen-meta-packaging

This comes to halt because pbuilder says that the mirror isn't set. This is probably the reason for the error in bl-welcome found by the OP in the thread linked to above.

sudo apt-get install pbuilder

The process halts with a ncurses screen saying that a mirror wasn't found.
If the suggested mirror is set manually, the install process continues; if instead the screen is closed without setting a mirror, pbuilder seems to have been installed anyway...

$ apt-cache policy pbuilder
pbuilder:
  Installed: 0.228.7
  Candidate: 0.228.7
  Version table:

        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Re: Helium: problem installing 'bunsen-meta-packaging'

Many thanks for checking this out. When you talk about setting a mirror manually, do you mean adding it to /etc/pbuilderrc?


Per aspera ad astra.

Re: Helium: problem installing 'bunsen-meta-packaging'

Last week I installed 1386 iso without problem, on an physical pc (gt tired of Antix).
So now, I also installed with helium-5-amd64.hybrid.iso. No errors during installation or running bl-welcome skript!
No error on certificates or pbuilder.
Installed all except dropbox.

The only difference is that I edited sources before running wellcomeskript. I use a local repository.

## DEBIAN 9 stretch
deb http://server/mirror/ftp.acc.umu.se/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://server/mirror/ftp.acc.umu.se/debian/ stretch-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://server/mirror/ftp.acc.umu.se/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://server/mirror/ftp.acc.umu.se/debian/ stretch-proposed-updates main contrib non-free

# Debian Security stretch
deb http://server/mirror/security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

# Bunsenlabs Linux
deb http://server/mirror/eu.pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian/ helium main
deb http://server/mirror/eu.pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian stretch-backports main

But, that should not make any difference...

The ncurses dialog that appears with the error message suggests a mirror url. I just copied and pasted that into the entry box.

But after I exited the terminal without doing that step ( in a second install test) I found that pbuilder had been installed anyway.
