This seems to be a problem with the App Center server. Please try again later

Hi , good day to all,

I am trying to populate UCS 4.2 with apps both from the Web console and at the CLI, resulting with this error message:

https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/4.2/index.json.gz.gpg could not be downloaded. This seems to be a problem with the App Center server. Please try again later.”
At the CLI:

univention-app update

Downloading “https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/categories.ini”…
Downloading “https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/rating.ini”…
Downloading “https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/license_types.ini”…
Downloading “https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/ucs.ini”…
Downloading “https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/4.2/index.json.gz”…
Downloading “https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/4.2/index.json.gz.gpg”…
https://appcenter-test.software-univention.de/meta-inf/4.2/index.json.gz.gpg could not be downloaded. This seems to be a problem with the App Center server. Please try again later.

I upgraded this install from 4.0 -> 4.1 then finally to 4.2. But before that, the 4.0 install seems dormant for a number of months, or I think over a year and I updated it using the CLI, trying to get help into univention- because I was unable to do an update from it. I fix it using the commands(got it from history):

71 univention-repository-update net
72 ucr set repository/mirror/prefix=“univention-repository”
73 univention-repository-update net
74 sudo nano /etc/apt/mirror.list
75 univention-repository-update net
76 ucr set local/respository=“yes”
77 univention-repository-update net

After this I was able to upgrade finally to 4.2. NOw the problem seems to be the file “index.json.gz.gpg” which the system is trying to download and it is not present hence the error. Does anybody knew a solution to this?

Thank you.

Hi,
Are you developing apps for UCS or is there any other specific reason to use appcenter-test.software-univention.de instead of the production App Center?

Best Regards,

Hi Dirk,

I am not developing apps for UCS but I am still new to UCS. I setup this configuration over a year ago as a PDC/AD. Now I resurrected it and try to upgrade it to 4.2 which I was able to. My question, in relation to your question is how can I enable the production app center? I just want to install some apps like the Zimbra app. It won’t populate app listing as it did when it was at 4.1 series, due to the error message. I am trying to get help also from the cli with the univention- .

Thank you for your help,
Allan

Hi Allan,

the standard way to switch back from the Testing Appcenter to production is:

univention-app dev-use-test-appcenter --revert

This method is applicable when the procedure descibed in http://wiki.univention.de/index.php?title=App_Center/Dev/Upload_the_App was used before.
I would also check the active repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. As far as I remember the described method using univention-app does not change active repos for installed apps.

Best Regards,
Dirk

Hi Dirk,

Thank you, I was able to resolve it now with the command you provided and the repository is back in production repo.

Allan
