Zymkey Apt Repo URL Has Changed


For those of you that have not yet installed the Zymkey software components using the “Getting Started” guide, this notice can be disregarded.

However, for those of you that have installed Zymkey software, the apt repo URL has changed. To keep up to date with the latest software you’ll want to make a simple change with the following steps:

  1. On your Pi, edit the file ‘/etc/apt/sources.list.d/zymbit.list’. For example: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/zymbit.list
  2. You should see something like: deb https://zymkey-sw-repo.s3.amazonaws.com/apt-repo/ jessie main
  3. Change the URL to https://s3.amazonaws.com/zk-sw-repo/apt-repo/. It should now look like: deb https://s3.amazonaws.com/zk-sw-repo/apt-repo/ jessie main
  4. Save your changes and exit.
  5. Update the package list: sudo apt-get update
  6. Upgrade the packages (this could take a long time depending on the number of updates): sudo apt-get upgrade

…and you’re done! Have fun!





Hi @Scott_of_Zymbit,

Actually, just noticed some message during the apt-get update :

Err https://s3.amazonaws.com jessie/main armhf Packages

E: Le téléchargement de quelques fichiers d'index a échoué, ils ont été ignorés, ou les anciens ont été utilisés à la place.


W: Impossible to download https://s3.amazonaws.com/zk-sw-repo/dists/jessie/main/binary-armhf/Packages HttpError404
E: Downloading of some few index files failed, they were ignored, or old ones were used instead.

Is everything alright ?
Doesn’t appear when doing apt-get update with the old version of the zymbit.list


Hi @wiill,
Sorry, there was a typo in the first post. Please see revised instructions: deb https://zymkey-sw-repo.s3.amazonaws.com/apt-repo/ jessie main
