Hi everybody,

I'm trying to install OpenFoam 2.10 on Ubuntu 11.10 but I've got stuck in a error and I'm not being able to find out any solution. Can someone help me, please?

The error message i get is this:

WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
openfoam210
Install these packages without verification [y/N]? y
Err http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu/ oneiric/main openfoam210 i386 0-1
Got a single header line over 360 chars
Failed to fetch http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubu...0_0-1_i386.deb Got a single header line over 360 chars
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?


Can someone help me with that?

Thanks,
Lucas

Hello Lucas,

Try manually downloading the .deb file. Move it to /var/cache/apt/archives/ (e.g. sudo mv openfoam210*.deb /var/cache/apt/archives/) then try again: sudo apt-get install openfoam210

Hey! I found it!
Use the second link of the error message. Youll get the right .deb.
Move it to /var/cache.. just as posted. Then install again.
Worked!

Hi Zoltan,

Thanks for answering my question, but i still have the same problem .
As you see below I tried to download the file and again it gave me an error message:

administrator@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get download openfoam210
Err Downloading openfoam210 0-1
Got a single header line over 360 chars


Is there any other way to download manually the .deb file?

Thanks,
Lucas

Nevermind this post, I downloaded the wrong file. I'll leave for records in case anyone does the same. I downloaded this file:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/foam...se_mirror=kent

but this one worked for me:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/foam...se_mirror=garr

It still isn't working for me even though I have downloaded the deb packaged and put it in the /var/cache/.. directory. I use Ubuntu oneiric and the file openfoam.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ contains "deb http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu oneiric main".

I have tried to sudo apt-get update before using sudo apt-get install openfoam210, but I still get the error message:

After this operation, 452 MB of additional disk space will be used.

I only wrote more debugging notes about this issue. Right now there is no quick fix, all thanks to Sourceforge.net having changed their mirror management system

Well, expect perhaps copy-pasting these lines of code (for installing OpenFOAM 2.1.0 and ParaView 3.12.0 that goes along with it):
Code:
sudo wget `apt-get -qq --print-uris install openfoam210 | sed "s='\(.*\)'.*=\1="` -P /var/cache/apt/archives/
sudo wget `apt-get -qq --print-uris install paraviewopenfoam3120 | sed "s='\(.*\)'.*=\1="` -P /var/cache/apt/archives/
sudo apt-get install openfoam210 paraviewopenfoam3120
It's not very pretty, but it does the trick And when I say "copy-pasting", I do mean literally copy-pasting these lines, because if you mistype any character, it will not work

Best regards,
Bruno

Bruno,

Trying your method, but I'm getting the following error from the first command

wget: missing URL
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...

Try `wget --help' for more options.


Do you know what this means?

Same happened to me, but only after I had already downloaded the packages. Try running these commands:
  • To see the URL that apt-get shows us:
    Code:
    apt-get -qq --print-uris install openfoam210
  • You can check if the packages are already present in the cache folder:
    Code:
    ls -l /var/cache/apt/archives/
Nonetheless, a (somewhat temporary) solution has been implemented. You should be able to use the official instructions without any problems... albeit perhaps a bit slow, depending on the country you're downloading from.

No problem! Apparently your guess was right, because a solution has been put into effect thanks to my debugging

I've been having a similar problem to the original poster so have downloaded the files. My problem now is that I can't put them into the folder mentioned above, I get a permission denied error message.

Would anyone know why this is? Or how to get around it?

I'm completely new to Ubuntu.

Greetings David and welcome to the forum!

It would help if you could detail what exact version of Ubuntu you are using and which version of OpenFOAM are you trying to install!

Additionally, knowing what errors you're getting would also help.

Nonetheless, if you are using Ubuntu 12.10 and trying to install OpenFOAM 2.1.1, try following the first couple of options given here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_12.10

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno, thanks for the welcome.

I've a windows operating system so have created a virtual machine that is now running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (slowly) and I'm trying install OpenFOAM 2.1.1.

I've followed the first and second step on the Ubuntu Deb Pack Installation page but get the error:

W: Failed to fetch http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubu...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found

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

Now I have downloaded the openfoam211_0-1_amd64.deb and the paraviewopenfoam3120_0-1_amd64.deb files but I can't seem to move them from the download folder to the vars/cache/apt/archives folder.

I have tried a few other things today, been at it a couple of hours now, but none were successful.

Edit: Actually I just checked and it's Ubuntu 12.10 I've installed, so I've uninstalled it and I'm now installing v12.04 LTS

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad it's working. I was starting to get worried that there was another problem with the Sourceforge.net website...
