Failed to fetch Sources


Good morning,

I tried to install SciDB 14.8 using:

cd /root/deployment-14.8/cluster_install
yes | ./cluster_install -s /home/scidb/scidb_docker_8.ini

This have worked many times before, but now I am getting this error message:

Ign ubuntu12.04/14.8/ Release.gpg
Ign ubuntu12.04/14.8/ Release
Err ubuntu12.04/14.8/ Sources
  Undetermined Error
Err ubuntu12.04/14.8/ Packages
  Undetermined Error
W: Failed to fetch  Undetermined Error

W: Failed to fetch  Undetermined Error

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Could something be wrong with Paradigm4 repositories?

Kind regards.


Please download the cluster installer from the master trunk on github and re-run the installation.


I found the problem: the server was missing a package:

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https

Now the script is working again. Thanks for your answer, it helped me to find the problem.

Kind regards.


I’ve had a similar problem with using the “” url in apt sources recently. It redirects to the https version, “”, so if you use that url then it works fine.
