Failed to upgrade

Hello
I run apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade but after connected to some mirrors, shows up this message

Failed to fetch http://mirror.whonix.de/whonixdevelopermetafiles/internal/dists/essie/main/binary-amd64/Packages Received HTTP code 403 from proxy after CONNECT

Regards

Good day,

This could either be a temporary issue, in which case I’d recommend trying it again after some time, or it could mean that said mirror is currently broken as explained here: W: Failed to fetch from mirror.whonix.de

However, in your case there seems to be something quiet different going on. The URL says “essie” when in reality it should spell “jessie”. Could you please verify that this is in fact the correct spelling because otherwise you seem to have tipped us off to a rather problematic typo.

Furthermore I’ve moved the thread, since this seems to apply to files not specific to Qubes-Whonix.

Have a nice day,

Ego

I doubt the typo is caused by Whonix. We would have heard about that by now. (No updates related to that code recently.)

Btw Whonix does not use mirrors anymore. mirror.whonix.de is now redirected to download.whonix.org, which is hosted on Whonix server.

Just recreate your /etc/sources.list.d/whonix.list by running Whonix APT Repository tool, which will overwrite the broken file and replace it with a working one.

Good day,

Like @Patrick mentioned, please run the Whonix-APT-Repository-Tool. It should bring your repository up to the newest version.

Have a nice day,

Ego

That link works for me in a browser.

Since Whonix 13 we are using:

http://www.whonix.org/download/whonixdevelopermetafiles/internal/

Perhaps you missed the Whonix 12 -> 13 upgrade long time ago?

( https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_12_to_Whonix_13 )

Try run this command.

echo "deb http://www.whonix.org/download/whonixdevelopermetafiles/internal/ jessie main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/whonix.list

Keep a backup before you upgrade. And hope the Whonix 12 -> 13 upgrade process is still functional since Whonix 12 is unsupported for a long time now.

Perfect. Now works
I had to reinstall qubes 3.0, after I have upgrade it to 3.1 following qubes tutorial.
Qubes manager showed me that there are update to do, but apt-get dist-upgrade gave me 0 0 0 as result. After running echo… I installed about 90 MB in ws and gw, following this guide
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_12_to_Whonix_13
