Can't install BitMessage following the Wiki [SOLVED with AppImage until another option]

Hi again,
As I am doing a fresh install of Whonix 16.
I am stuck following the Wiki

and getting that error message

Removing

package python-msgpack
package python-qt4

gives me

And why do I get ?

many thanks for supporting me as I am totally lost.

Any idea on how to solve that issue @Patrick ?
Your time would be very appreciated.

Wiki updated but untested.

Upstream hasn’t updated instructions for Debian bullseye yet. Unspecific to Whonix.

https://wiki.bitmessage.org/index.php/Compiling_instructions#Linux

If it doesn’t work, please consider contacting upstream, asking about Debian bullseye. Related to:

Ok, thank you for your anwser @Patrick .
I opened an issue on GitHub, let’s see if I get some help there.
Will update here accordingly.
Best regards.

Update : I kindly got an answer from Member Peter Surda and he proposed me an AppImage that works perfectly.

So this would be the alternative for now I guess.

Additional question : Is there a command line or many so I can delete the packages dependencies that are not useful after having run the Wiki procedure? I just want a clean system as it is brand new :wink:

 sudo apt-get install python openssl libssl-dev git python-msgpack python-qt4

 git clone https://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmessage $HOME/PyBitmessage

Thanks for teaching me.

Same as Debian. Information Booster might be Available! applies.

sudo apt get purge pkg-name pkg-name2 ...

Ok thank you @Patrick, I’ll have a try without destoying my new Whonix 16 :cold_sweat:
