Update Openhab 2.5.12-1 to 3 - Error message

Dear all,

i am currently trying to update from Openhab 2.5.12-1 to Openhab 3.
However, i am receiving the following error:

There was an error or interruption during the execution of: │
│ “03 | Install openHAB” │
│ │
│ Please try again. If the error persists, please read │
│ /opt/openhabian/docs/openhabian-DEBUG.md or │
openhabian/openhabian-DEBUG.md at main · openhab/openhabian · GitHub how │
│ to proceed.

I am using a Raspberry PI 3+.
The Openhab Version 2 was running fine.

I am trying to update via SSH GUI:
sudo openhabian-config
03 | Install openHAB

I activated the maximum debug mode and the relevant terminal output is the following:

  • echo -n '2021-07-25_13:58:19_CEST [openHABian] Installing selected openHAB3 version… ’
    2021-07-25_13:58:19_CEST [openHABian] Installing selected openHAB3 version… + cond_redirect apt-get update
  • [[ -n ‘’ ]]
  • echo -e ‘\n\033[90;01m$ apt-get update \033[39;49;00m’

$ apt-get update

There seems to be a problem with an old Pilight installation.
I am not using Pilight anymore (because it stoped working).
However, i am a noob regarding Linux. Therefore, i dont know how to uninstall it :frowning:

Can someone help me?
Thank you!

I do not know the package name but you may try:

sudo apt-get remove pilight

To get rid off the error message you need to remove the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pilight.list:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pilight.list

then

sudo apt-get update

Dear Wolfgang_S,
thank you for your answer.
Unfortunately it is still not working.

I tried to do the following:

openhabian@openhab:~$ sudo apt-get remove pilight
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package 'pilight' is not installed, so not removed
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.

Then i tried to check what the exact name of Pilight is:

dpkg-query -l

Finding the names “pilight”, “pilight-dbg” and “pilight-webgui”.
Therefore i performed:

sudo apt-get purge pilight
sudo apt-get purge pilight-dbg
sudo apt-get purge pilight-webgui

After doing so the names were not showing up anymore.
I did a reboot and tried to update OpenHab again.
Same result like above. So i did:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pilight.list

In the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d there are now only the following files:

  • openhab.list
  • raspi.list
  • vscode.list

After this i did

sudo apt-get update

With the following result:

openhabian@openhab:~$ sudo apt-get update

I really dont know what to do now :frowning:
Can someone help?

I found this topic here covering a similar issue The Stable (Release) Linux repositories have changed location

Selecting 40 | openHAB Related → 41 | openHAB Stable in the configuration tool is also ending in the same error message.

After this i just checked all the files in /etc/apt/ and found the following in /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
#deb-src http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://apt.pilight.org/ stable main
deb http://apt.pilight.org/ development main
deb http://apt.pilight.org/ nightly main

I commented the last 3 entries and tried the OpenHab Update again.
And its running now :slight_smile:

Not sure if this approach was fine but at least it seems to update to OpenHab 3.
