[SOLVED] [SID] Is it safe to upgrade?

Postby Wheelerof4te » 2018-04-14 12:42

I know that Sid is not encouraged for general usage, but I wonder if it's safe to upgrade in this case. This is purely informative, the hashes don't match for non-free repo. Here is an error message:
Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
E: Failed to fetch store:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/deb.debian.org_debian_dists_sid_non-free_dep11_Components-amd64.yml.xz  Hash Sum mismatch
   Hashes of expected file:
    - Filesize:72292 [weak]
    - SHA256:64b9be98f14db2f20b9730981fc799db28903d53adec5e501ad25ffe965d5c7e

   Release file created at: Sat, 14 Apr 2018 08:34:47 +0000
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

More info: It seems that all my software is up-to-date:
Code: Select all
apt full-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I just want to know what this means? From the looks of it, non-free repo isn't yet updated with the right info.

Hi,
At a cursory glance, maybe fixing-apt-hash-sum-mismatch-consistent-apt-repositories will help?

^Thank you, after that I was able to update the list and do an upgrade.
