Can't access "Mx test Repo" and "Debian Backports" from Mx Packages Installer (Solved by Reinstalling)

#1

I can't access "Mx test Repo" and "Debian Backports" from my Mx Packages Installer. Whenever I click on any of them it returns me to the "Popular Application" Tab.
I have also trive to "Restore Orginal APT source" using MX Repo Manager. How to solve this issue?

See my reply to your other topic viewtopic.php?f=104&p=522182#p522182. I think you have a bad installation of MX. One way to test that would be to boot with your live USB and see if you have the same issue in MX Package Installer. And thank you so much for providing your system information! :smile:

Before you restored the sources to default,had you added any repos or PPA? Or installed apps from deb files?

Logs are always a good place to start...

Have a look in

Code: Select all

/var/log/mxpi.log
for any logged errors etc

Honestly, I'd expect a reply like this: "Thank you all guys, I've solved... "

Both this thread and this viewtopic.php?f=104&p=522503#p522503 are live examples to the importance of checking the sum of the iso and neglecting such a tiny thing can cause many confusions and spoil everything...
When asking for help, please first : Menu => MX Tools => Quick System Info
Even no need to select & copy. The output will get in the clipboard automatically, just paste.

Make sure you aren't stuck at updating from the test repos. It happened to me once, and my solution was to use Timeshift. Never really found out how it got stuck on the test repos, I only downloaded one app.

in an ideal World that's how it should be. I try my best to reply with a Thanks and provide how I solved it, but as MXL is becoming more famous, I believe we should give newbies more chances until they become more experienced in forum etiquette. Nevertheless I agree with you.
