Test161 will not update past version 1.3.1


(Brian Thomas Coyne) #1

I tried updating test161 in order to submit but it will not update past version 1.3.1. I am running Ubuntu 16.04. I have tried clean installing as well and upon installation, test161 is still version 1.3.1 and will not allow submission because I am not at the most current version.


kernel boots through os161, but not with test161

Does this not work?

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

That does not work. I also clean installed everything and repulled from the repository and tried again. The version is still 1.3.1 and I am still unable to submit.

Odd. I just removed it and reinstalled it on my vagrant instance (16.04) and it was fine. The ops-class source repo won’t matter here since test161 comes from launchpad. I’d probably do the following:

Make sure it’s running the test161 binary that it should be. This should be /usr/bin/test161.

which test161

Make sure sudo apt-get update actually updated things:

apt-cache show test161

The version that the apt-cache command should output is Version: 1.3.2~20170304~xenial0.

which test161 displays /usr/bin/test161 as expected.

apt-cache show test161 displays the following:

The problem seems to be that apt-get update is not actually updating things. I’ll look into why but if you have any solutions they’d be much appreciated.


(Geoffrey Challen) #6

What do you mean by this? test161 isn’t installed from a repository—it’s installed using apt-get. So there is nothing to pull…?


(Brian Thomas Coyne) #7

Was just trying to cover all of my bases. It ended up being that the ppa was somehow disabled.

Normally when you upgrade to a new Ubuntu version PPAs are disabled. Not sure why that would have happened otherwise. Glad you got it sorted.
