I have version 89 running.
I did a apt-get update and upgrade recently.
Since then DietPi update is not working.
Connection to files is made, reporting new version v90 available
Then get message
'waiting for apt-get update to finish: Please wait…
apt-cache database size:35476 KB
How can I resolve this ?
DietPi automatically runs apt-get update every 7 days, and, if during installations that require additional apt sources.
Your issue will occur if DietPi is waiting for an apt-get update process to finish. For some reason, your apt-get update process doesnt finish, hence the wait.
Please can you try the following to clean and reset your apt cache:
Please be patient, depending on your network/sd speed etc, this process can take anything from 10seconds to 2+ minutes.
Thx for quick reply.
Sorry to inform You that the problem persists.
Waited for about 20 minutes. WIFI dongle LED blinked continuously and rapidly all the time.
Aborted with ctrl+C.
Killall apt-get gives me ‘apt-get: no process found’
‘apt-get clean’ displays no errors nor any other message
Only difference is that apt-cache size is now 16 KB.
Afterwards I did a apt-get update, which worked fine.
I’ve updated the code for this script.
Can you please run the following and report result:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Fourdee/DietPi/testing/dietpi/dietpi-apt-get_update -O /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-apt-get_update
killall apt-get &> /dev/null
killall dietpi-apt-get_update &> /dev/null
If after 1-2 minutes there is no change to cache size, please ctrl+c and then the following:
ls -lha /var/cache/apt
Let me know what the result is.
Also, could you send me a DietPi-Bugreport so I can check your settings:
Please post your Reference CODE.
Your new solution fixed the problem.
After running the script I executed a regular dietpi-update and now system is on v
Thx a lot.
