Thank you very much, it worked to update from 3.3.15 to the 3.3.18!

After that, I checked for updates and the upgrade was to the version was 3.3.19.
Next, after checking again for updates and rebooting, the new version is 3.5.3 :smile:

  1. Open the application called ‘Terminal’
  2. In this application run the command:
rm -f eos-fix-ostree-repo
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/endlessm/eos-meta/master/eos-tech-support/eos-fix-ostree-repo
chmod +x eos-fix-ostree-repo
sudo ./eos-fix-ostree-repo && flatpak update -y

Restart your computer and try to update again


#119

#120

Unfortunately still not working!
Just to be clear, in your last message you ment I should go to the terminal and tipe: sudo grub-editenv - create + ENTER

and not : rm -f eos-fix-ostree-repo
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/endlessm/eos-meta/master/eos-tech-support/eos-fix-ostree-repo
chmod +x eos-fix-ostree-repo
sudo ./eos-fix-ostree-repo && flatpak update -y + ENTER

and after is finishing tipe again : sudo grub-editenv - create + ENTER

I was only going to the terminal and tiped : sudo grub-editenv - create + ENTER
Result was again Fail to Update


#121

Something that would help us a lot to understand the problem would be this:

  1. Open the application called ‘Terminal’
  2. In this application run the command:

eos-diagnostics

  1. The above command will create a file with the information of your system (example: eos-diagnostic-160614_111731_UTC + 0100.txt); Send us this file so we can analyze and see a possible solution

Try running the following command in a terminal:

sudo ostree admin upgrade --verbose 2>&1 | tee ostree-admin-upgrade.log

If the command succeeds, try rebooting. Either way, please attach ostree-admin-upgrade.log here.


#128

It said that it failed to do the process because the name and the service are unknown …

ostree-admin-upgrade.log (148.0 KB)


#129

Any news on that ???


#130

Sorry that I may seem unpacient but i would really want to know if I can come further with the endless os or I will have to send back the laptop. The other variant would be to change to windows 10 but I’ve buyed this computer just because it has linux on it. Tired of windows.
A answer/solution anytime soon will be highly appreciated.

Cheers
Adrian


#131

Sorry for the delay.

Specifically:

error: Fehler beim Auflösen von »ostree.endlessm.com«: Der Name oder der Dienst ist nicht bekannt

This is a standard error which generally indicates a network problem; it did seem that the update was making progress until that happened. Are you able to try installing the update on a different network? What does:

host ostree.endlessm.com

show?
