Description Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2018-03-02 17:29:02 CET
Due to changes in python-apt the PackageManager in the UCS@school Installer fails to update package cache.

According to Dirk, the PackageManager/python-apt will not be able to handle repos e.g. without Relase files. This behaviour blocks all installation tests with UCS 4.3 from the test app center.

Dirk suggested to replace the affected package_manager.update() call with a subprocess call of "apt-get update". A short test looks very promising.

The output of apt-get is printed to the UMC modules's logfile.
