I started with a netinstall debian with systemtweaks and ssh server enabled. Then I used the git repository described on:

(openHABian | openHAB)

for installing openhab. Last I used openhabian-config to install “influxdb+grafana”

Installing Influxdb+grafana is running in an error. I found the solution in changing the influxdb repository entry in apt configuration file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/influxdb.list:

I changed “bookworm stable”

 deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/influxdata-archive_compat.gpg] https://repos.influxdata.com/debian bookworm stable

to “stable main”

deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/influxdata-archive_compat.gpg] https://repos.influxdata.com/debian stable main

like it is shown on the incluxdb repository “homepage”:

InfluxData - Package Repository

Now downloading and installing influxdb works like a charm.

It looks like a bug in automated generating the repository file for influxdb. Where can I open a ticket?

New issues can be opened at Issues · openhab/openhabian · GitHub

Then you also can delete it. “stable main” points to bookwork at time of writing: Debian -- Debian Releases . This then will use the influxdb of the ( bookworm ) distribution

The idea of the extra .list file was/is to install a more up to date influxdb. As at this moment it is not available / the repo is not available you get the error message. See Bookworm readyness · Issue #1788 · openhab/openhabian · GitHub
