How to install the openhab paperUI

I recently installed openHAB+MQTT+influxDb , i installed just the openhab-runtime , i’d like to know how to get the UI’s installed as i see no option in the list of possible options for sudo apt-get install openhab-

If you installed openHAB 2.1 stable using apt-get on a linux host (e.g. Raspberry Pi running openHABian), you should use PaperUI (which comes by default with the openhab package) to add options to your system (for example to install another User Interface like HABPanel)

Access PaperUI by browsing to: http://<IP_of_OH>:8080

Some useful info can be found here:

yes i do browse using http://localhost:8080 but i just get a screen with a grey bar that says openHAB
and below that @2010-2015 the url redirects to http://localhost:8080/

hmmm… if I am not wrong… this is coming from the OH 1.x world.
Which version of openHAB are you using? (which installation instructions did you follow?)

i would assume its the latest as i followed a tutorial using the following

OpenHAB Key and Source (remove brackets from http://):
wget -qO - ‘[https://]’ | sudo apt-key add -
echo “deb [http://] stable main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openhab.list

edit: oops… this (apt-repo) is for openHAB 1 (stable = 1.8.3)
(if I am not completely wrong… there is no PaperUI for openHAB 1… only for openHAB 2)
apt-repo2 (stable) is for openHAB 2 (stable = 2.1)

Use: for openHAB 2.1

forgive me here please but where did i go wrong…

are you saying i should do this

wget -qO - ‘[https://]’ | sudo apt-key add -

echo “deb [http://] stable main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openhab.list

replace apt-repo with apt-repo2?

Basically: yes
It is better to use the installation instructions.

wget -qO - '' | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
echo 'deb stable main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openhab2.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openhab2

Then, remove your already installed openHAB 1 runtime:

apt-get purge openhab

thank you very much for your assistance… i shall do this now…

Thank you again.
