Corrupt .deb file in ISO?

Postby rovernut » 2018-01-18 18:51

I've downloaded debian-9.3.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso three times and keep getting the message:
Code: Select all
Warning: file:///cdrom/pool/main/b/bash/bash_4.4-5_amd64.deb was corrupt

Image

I've tried using two different DVD drives.
I even get it when mounting the downloaded iso to install in a Vbox virtual machine.
md5 and sha512 both say the iso is good.

I'm at a loss what to try next.

The first thing I would do is copy that package off of the DVD and check it using sha256sum. Have you done that?

Here's what it should be:

More information on bash_4.4-5_amd64.deb:
Exact Size 1426746 Byte (1.4 MByte)
MD5 checksum 23966a12c6937bb3acd6572a94212e83
SHA256 checksum ec375aa432a743ec44781cb91802f5752021e7e107b48ee2e9aa2f7b9fc23f86

The above info is from here:
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/amd64/bash/download

When you downloaded the image, did you check the SHA512SUM or SHA256SUM?
https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-cd/
First step, download and check SHA256SUM or SHA512SUM.
Next, cat or dd the image to USB or burn to DVD / CD.

Yesh, did md5 and sha512 on th eiso as stated in the OP.
I haven't done just that single .deb, will do that.

edit --
Ok, both MD5 and sha256 match.

We had a incident at work with a BladeLogic file deploy job that contained a zip file that contained other zip files and even though one of the nested zip files was corrupt, the MD5 and SHA512 matched on the good original file so I thought maybe it could be a similar situation.
I'd actually thought of doing this but hadn't gotten to it because of life the universe and everything.
On the other hand I couldn't imagine a bad .deb in the iso being around for long before someone else noticed it.

Do you need the DVD image? If you have tried three times, I'd look for another image, say CD image or even netinst image.

During the installation, you can choose to use a mirror, or just install and update afterwards. If you have a cable connection, netinst image is usually enough. If you only have wireless, you may need a non-free package to get your wireless working, but you can install that separately from another usb device.

Yeah, I'll try netinst. At this point I have nothing to lose.

I decided to try 8.9 and downloaded it from here: http://bttracker.debian.org:6969/stat
Same result, corrupt .deb files trying both DVD install to my laptop and to a Vbox VM from the mounted iso.

This whole thing is just baffling to me, never had this kind of issue before.
I've had bad DVD's before, but burning another always worked. But never had an issue with installing to a VM.

Well, I tried netinst, both CD and thumb drive. Same issue, corrupt .deb files.

I've never seen anything like this before, baffling.

edit - If I hit continue is says corrupt for every .deb file.

Well, I used the netinst to install guided, everything in one partition and it installed fine and booted up.
Now I'm going back and trying encrypted partitions again with /boot on a thumb drive.
We shall see.

Well, failed again reporting unable to download files or .deb's corrupt.

What is the OS on the computer that you are using to download the ISO files?

So far i seem to have narrowed it down to manually partitioning the HD is when it fails.

These are the tests I've run so far:
Guided not encrypted
single partition
(I can't remember what size swap it assigned)
Success

Manual partitioning
/ - 30gb
swap - 16.9
/home - 353.2 gb
Failed

Guided encrypted LVM
/ 384 GB
swap - 16gb
boot - 6gb thumb drive
Success

Manual partitioning
Not encrypted
/ - 25Gb
Swap - 16 GB
Home - 358GB
boot - 6gb thumb drive
Failed

Always fails reporting corrupt .deb file. Don't ask which one, if I hit "continue" it goes to another (the next?) and reports corrupt. That keeps up until I get bored hitting "continue".
Ok, if anyone really wants to know I can make a (long) list.

Hi Tom,

How exactly are you performing the manual partitioning? What tools are you using? MS-DOS or GPT partition table?

I'm not choosing the tool. Just doing it via the non-graphical install menu.
