Raspberry Pi3. Jessie -- Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-armhf/Packages' in Release file - gets 99% complete

Postby spizzi » Sun Apr 16, 2017 12:37 am

I tried searching first regarding this error.

I have a new Pi3 with Jessie (full version) installed. I already (successfully) completed apt-update, apt-upgrade, apt dist-upgrade. Done there. But when I get to installing OpenVPN using:

$ wget -O - https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo ... pg|apt-key add -
$ echo "deb http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/testing jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvpn-aptrepo.list
$ apt-get update && apt-get install openvpn

I get this error at about 99% through the install.


W: Failed to fetch http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn ... ie/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-armhf/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)



I have been searching Google for hours regarding the following issue. It looks like something might be wrong with the installer. Both Testing Jessie main, Stable Jessie main, any of the Release Jessie main, throw this same error. Hopefully someone out there has run into this problem.

Am I missing anything?
Thoughts?

The openvpn repo does not maintain an ARM package.

You can build it yourself by following this:
