Thanks for the reply. Nothing jumps out at me, but I am not familiar with what should or should not be running at startup.

I do not see anything that could be getting the lock...

The usual culprit on Ubuntu is unattended-upgrade. But I'm not familiar with Astroberry and that might not exist or has been disabled.

Little snippets of *NIX come back to me in a foggy haze sometimes. I used sudo -s and then separately apt-get update then apt-get upgrade. That worked.

Still KStars 3.5.0 though, so I'll need to do it again, I guess in a few days :)

Hello,

The error with the packaging DB getting locked usually occurs within 60-70 secs after boot up. I wait 2-3 minutes for Raspbian OS to finish its health checks before checking for updates. The lock is supposed to be temporary. As for KSTARS not updating, the AstroBerry canonical list is limited to few libraries. This is to ensure that the paradigm of AstroBerry doesn’t get so messed up that Kaczorek spends a long time fixing.

I added the canonical libraries of KSTARS Bleeding, INDI, and a Raspbian. That was it. Raspbian is nothing like Ubuntu. Ubuntu mixes i386 with ARMFH. For example, under Ubuntu, a Raspberry kernel update will never install because a symbolic link it tries to create is on the FAT32 side of Raspbian. I sought support and was told this kernel is for i386 and who is Raspberry?

Hi Arado,
so you did the following in the astroberry installation?
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

What canonical library for raspbian did you include? I'm not so familiar with Raspberry Pi OS/Raspbian...

Thank you

Hello,

Yes. These two repositories were what I add. The Raspbian was specifically for BIOS and Firmware. I noticed several needed updating before Raspbian and AstroBerry were at peace with each other.

Running kstars 3.5.2 on my RPi4 with Raspbian Buster.

Tried upgrading to the latest version Kstars3.5.3 and compiled the source tarball. Compiled OK but there is no Ekos tab on the menubar. So had to resort back to 3.5.2.

Anyone got 3.5.3 working on RPi
