Hi,

I cannot download Failed to download Packages.gz.
It fails from the basic user interface and with opkg update.

# opkg update
Downloading .....Packages.gz.
wget: bad address hummypkg org uk'
Collected errors:
* opkg_download: Failed to download ......Packages.gz, wget returned 1.
Here is output from wget for the same file:
wget ....Packages.gz
--2014-05-31 12:06:59-- ....Packages.gz
Resolving hummypkg.org.uk (hummypkg.org.uk)... 89.248.55.75, 2a00:5600:1600::50
Connecting to hummypkg.org.uk (hummypkg.org.uk)|89.248.55.75|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 500 Internal Server Error
2014-05-31 12:07:04 ERROR 500: Internal Server Error.

The connection seems good but the file does not seem to exists.

Any ideas please?

Regards

I think it must be your connection to the internet that is the problem, I have just successfully sent this :-
Code:
humax# opkg update
Downloading http://hpkg.tv/hdrfoxt2/base/Packages.gz.
Inflating http://hpkg.tv/hdrfoxt2/base/Packages.gz.
Updated list of available packages in /mod/var/opkg/base.

Hi Ezra,
Many thanks but...

Nevertheless it does not work for me and I have tried the wget from two different servers in two different countries (different internet connections).
Because I am a new member I cannot post full links.
But the file my system is looking for is not the same as yours.

The file I need is http://hummypkg.org.uk/foxsat/base/Packages.gz

hummypkg.org.uk is still a valid alias for the new name though. It's odd that the wget succeeds (in as far as it can connect) but the opkg command says 'bad address', implying a DNS problem. The wget output has spaces between the bits of the hostname instead of dots -is that what it actually says or have you edited the output?

What's in the /etc/opkg/opkg.conf file?
Code:
humax# cat /etc/opkg/opkg.conf
dest root /mod
lists_dir ext /mod/var/opkg
option tmp_dir /mod/var/opkg/tmp
src/gz base http://hpkg.tv/hdrfoxt2/base
(That's from a freeview box but the Foxsat should look similar)

Hi,

Naturally of course it is all my fault. Parental controls.....at both internet points.
My apologies.
