Remmina install **SOLVED**
« on: August 29, 2019, 11:49:23 am »
hi all.

im getting an error when trying to install remmina via this command
sudo apt install -t stretch-backports remmina remmina-plugin-rdp remmina-plugin-secret remmina-plugin-spice

error is "The value 'stretch-backports' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources"

ive tried searching for remmina in the package manger but it does not appear.

stretch-backports is enabled in the repositry but the error "The repository 'https://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports Release' does not have a Release file." appears when reloading..any help appreciated

First of all . Did you properly setup stretch-backports repo?
Example at the link below.

No, I have not put in backports yet.  Example above is from debian stable -- buster

The only backport for remmina is for  old-stable -- stretch
https://packages.debian.org/stretch-backports/remmina       examine the other versions.   apt install shou


For buster "apt install remmina"  (as root) or "sudo apt install remmina"   should work. 

for apt-s install remmina      ## the -s runs a simulation   Pay no attention to my usage of a pipe to less  " apt -s install remmina | less"

Code: [Select]
WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.

NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.

I do apologize for getting mixed up that you are in Stretchh  (not Buster)  Yes backports is the only way.  Unless of course you want to dist-upgrade from old-stable to stable.  But maybe get used to linux, Debian and Sparky first

If you were to post one more time inxi -r (without all the busting up) it would be easier to check on your backports line. 

The previous sources.list had all "http://" for debian entries except for https:// for the backports.      I think the s after the http needs to go. 

I looked, but I did not see any changes notes for source lists to stretch for backports after it became the old-stable. 

I believe then that
 
Code: [Select]
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main
would be the working version.  try removing the "s"  And yes the http entries do get mangled here on this forum sometimes, it is the software for the forum.

no need for apology, i appreciate the effort.

I upgraded the distro as you suggested and also removed the s from https: and it all works fine now.
All i had to do after that was install the remmina dependencies via:

sudo apt install -t stretch-backports remmina remmina-plugin-rdp remmina-plugin-secret remmina-plugin-spice

all works fine now so once again thanks for all the help from a linux/sparky newbie  :D
