Missing DEB Files in /download/repositories/stable/Ubuntu_xx.yy/all


#1

All /download/repositories/stable/Ubuntuxx.yy/all_ folders appear to be missing 3 out of 4 DEB files that are present for versions earlier than 10.0.3:

owncloud-deps-php5_xxx_all.deb
owncloud-deps-php7.0_xxx_all.deb
owncloud_xxx_all.deb

I believe this bricked my OwnCloud installation when I ran an upgrade since everything including Apache and PHP has been uninstalled and trying sudo apt install owncloud throws up an error


#2

I will investigate this and get back to you

Edit: answer

" we don't ship the "owncloud" meta package and dependency packages anymore in order to prevent breaking other services on a server when upgrading owncloud. therefore only "owncloud-files" is provided which actually does the same as downloading tarball, extracting and replacing in the web server doc root"


#3

Thanks for the reply. Just so I understand, are you saying that the other packages are not needed anymore for upgrades or fresh installations?


#4

No, they are needed, they are just not provided anymore.


#5

Ah, ok. Thanks for clarifying. In that case, what's the process for building/obtaining the files that come in those packages?


#6

You can install them manually.

OK. Thanks for your guidance. Much appreciated! :slight_smile:

Yeah, this commands are for Ubuntu 16.04 thought. I couldn't finde any for Debian specifically. I hope it works.
