Hi folks,


wanted to follow devil's advice -  Migration back from KDE-Next to Debian-KDE - as described in the announcenments, but after a apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade I have got following Error:
.

852 upgraded, 25 newly installed, 10 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
18446744071772705524,2358121204
How odd... The sizes didn't match, email apt@packages.debian.org
Need to get 18.4 EB of archives.
After this operation, 13.1 MB of additional disk space will be used.
E: You don't have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/.


A df indicates to me that there should be enough space on disk.


Code: [Select]

A web search didn't find appropriate solutions either.


Any help appreciated.

Hi Thomas

no you don`t have enough disk space at all for 18.4 EB  (Exabyte (EB) ;-)

...Need to get 18.4 EB of archive...

try apt-get clean > apt-get update > apt-get dsit-upgrade

Hi Jürgen,


ok Exabyte - wow! Cannot image such an amount.


And apt wanted me to get that not me :-)


Unfortunately your hint didn't work, error remains the same.

you did ?

Comment (#)  all kdenext-related entries in your sources.list
Check if you have a separate kdenext.list and comment the lines there
and you have no other mysterious entries in your sources lists ?

I am not an expert - but
if you are at the point "Cleaning up" you can try
Code: [Select]
rm -rf /var/lib/apt/list/* && apt update
apt dist-upgrade

Is  "apt"  itself listed as one of the apps to get dist-upgraded ?

I believe it will be.

@jure
no I didn't, that error has been occured before I wanted to start the transition. Didn't touch the kdenext entry.


ok my sources.list.d looks as follows:
debian.list with usual unstable entry
misc.list commented as misc. siduction-lists which seems to provide experimental and user entries, but all are commented out and a
siduction.list with base, extra, fixes, and kdenext whereas last one was added by me times ago.


@piper
yep apt and apt-utils are listed by dist-upgrade.

Can you give this a try

Code: [Select]
apt-get update && apt-get --only-upgrade install apt apt-utils
Both should upgrade to version 1.1.5

After that, do

Code: [Select]
apt-get clean
Code: [Select]
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
Everything *should* be back to normal

Lets try this

Code: [Select]
apt-get clean
Code: [Select]
rm -rf /var/lib/apt/list/*
Inside /var/cache/apt you have 2 folders (apt-file, archives) and 2 .bin files (pkgcache.bin, srcpkgcache.bin).

As root, either move them or cut & paste them to a backup folder.

Now try a

Code: [Select]
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
If, for some reason the *.bin files don't regenerate (they should) you can regenerate them with

Code: [Select]
apt-cache gencaches

Hallo thomas

ich schreib`s mal auf deutsch

versuche doch mal per "apt update"nur einen Eintrag in einer Liste in "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/" - den Rest auskommentieren. Dann den nächsten .... um zu sehen ob es bei jedem Eintrag hängt, oder nur bei einem.

Hi,
after the public holidays I had more time to fumble around.
Here's the content of my debian.list:
# debian loadbalancer
#deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

#deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable main contrib
#deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable main non-free
#deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable contrib non-free
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ main contrib non-free

With "deb ... unstable main contrib" and "deb ... unstable main non-free" same error message as usual.
With "deb ... unstable contrib non-free" I could dist-upgrade 15 packages with "deb ... main contrib non-free" 6.
Whereas last one shows further error message after using apt update like:
