[SOLVED] openHABian upgrade stops with error

I tried to upgrade my openHABian installation using openhabian-config. But the first time ever in two years, it fails with the following error:

Platform is a Raspberry PI3+ and it’s not the first time I did upgrades.
Seems like something is broken in the repository? (“hostname not resolvable”)

Is there anything I can do?


Another one, huh.

Did you upgrade openHABian first before trying to upgrade the whole system?

I just started openhabian-config, confirmed the the suggestion to update the openhabian-config tool and then used the “upgrade” function in the GUI of openhabian (like I did for approx two years now). So, I didn’t do anything else than ever. I’ll have a look at the topic you shared, thanks.

It looks like many people right now have a problem with the Zulu install step.
If read (2-3 posts) and heard from two friends about this issue.

Maybe @ThomDietrich is aware on this. Just to make sure I am tagging him.

Which would be the correct path I have to download the Zulu manually for a RPi3B+? Is it https://cdn.azul.com/zulu-embedded/bin/zulu8.40.0.178-ca-jdk1.8.0_222-linux_aarch64.tar.gz

Meanwhile I found out the correct file and path - but have no idea how this could make the upgrade working again,

Here’s the path for a Pi3B+:

You never said you are on arch.
I assume this since your zulu url is linux_aarch.

wait wait I mixed something up. aarch is the architecture. Sorry my mistake.

I think that’s a good move - it seems the repository is no longer reachable via “http”, but only “https” - but the upgrade script of the openhabian-config seems to look for “http” - and then the download fails.
I’ll file a bug report on Githup

Found a workaround here: https://community.openhab.org/t/initial-setup-failed-on-raspi3b-due-to-a-java-zulu-path-error/70699/7?u=boby

To get the update going, only the editing of /opt/openhabian/functions/java-jre.bash was sufficient for me.
And: Yes, it’s a bug and it’s still open - so this workaround is the only way to circumvent the update.
