How Update Kstars on Astroberry RPi4

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

I'm in a bit of a pickle. 

I just read on CN that Kstars 3.5.3 has "real time" vectoring for polar alignment - very exciting. So, I fired up my Astroberry Pi4 and attempted to sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. Unfortunately, I can't seem to remember the root password! 

Forget for a moment I read moments ago here that 3.5.3 has not yet been released for Astroberry, am I SOL on the password? Do I have to do a complete reinstall? I'm currently connected via VNC, if that matters.

Thanks.

Well, well, well - it turns out there apparently was no root password set. I used sudo passwd root and was able to fix things. Wow, I am shocked I didn't set this already.

Thanks for the reply, but it turns out there was no root password. Sudo passwd root took care of it.

Hmm...not so fast. I just tried to do an update using sudo and got this-

sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

I am rusty.
