Cannot install owncloud

Post by buscon »


I am on Mint 19.2 .
Until two days ago I had ownclould-client installed and running. After a dist-upgrade owncloud-client was remove and now I am not able to install it again.
Here is the error I get:

$ sudo apt-get install owncloud-client
Reading package lists... Done

Hi buscon,

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

You can also check to see if there is an updated version of the owncloud client. Which installation method did you use?
Owncloud client Downloads

Install package owncloud-files - click Ubuntu and at 18.04 for Linux Mint v19.x or click link in Download packages manually (without adding a repo) ... /owncloud/

Current Linux Mint 19.x Deb file download, just save and double-click it to install it. ... .1_all.deb

Hope this helps ...

Thanks for your answer!

the information about my system are at the end of this message.

I installed owncloud adding the repository, that means:
wget -nv ... elease.key -O Release.key
apt-key add - < Release.key

echo 'deb ... ntu_19.04/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list
apt-get update
apt-get install owncloud-files

I used to get the owncloud client installed and running. now this is not the case.
Maybe it is a current problem of the owncloud repository?
