I'm upgrading to openfoam 6 on a newly installed Ubuntu 18.04.1
using the instructions at openfoam.org, which have worked well
in the past.

In response to the following commands.......


Code:
sudo sh -c "wget -O - http://dl.openfoam.org/gpg.key | apt-key add -"
sudo add-apt-repository http://dl.openfoam.org/ubuntu
I get..........

Code:
r@sys:~$ sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease                     
Hit:2 http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease

While not understanding the message, I went ahead and updated.......

And tried the install command.........


Code:
r@sys:~$ sudo apt-get -y install openfoam6
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 openfoam6 : Depends: libreadline-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Can anyone figure this out?

Quick answer: I've Google'd for:
Code:
ubuntu "Release file for"  "is not valid yet"
and it seems that the problem is that your machine clock is ahead of time for a few hours, hence the message that the release file is not valid yet...

As far as I can figure out, this is a safety measure to avoid machines using a repository that is still syncing up with another server.

Allegedly:
  • Either you change how the clock is defined in your machine, namely by telling it to use NTP (the option is named something like "automatically defined with Internet clock") or run the following command:
    Code:
    sudo timedatectl set-ntp on
  • Or you change the current clock time manually, install OpenFOAM et al and the set the clock back to the desired time.

That was indeed the case........I had the correct
local time but the wrong time zone.
The installation is working properly, thank you
for the help Bruno.
