Proxmox Error When Updating


On my Proxmox box there is a daily apt-get update task run. However it has been erring out every time it has run since I installed Proxmox. So hopefully this will fix it.

Work Part

There are various package repositories for Proxmox and those are listed in File /etc/apt/sources.list

The listings in that file influence what is checked for during the update process.

My concern is that I have this listing when I run "apt-get update"

Err:8 stretch/pve-enterprise amd64 Packages 401 Unauthorized W: The repository ' stretch Release' does not have a Release file. N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details. E: Failed to fetch 401 Unauthorized E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Now this most likely have an issue with my /etc/apt/sources.list

I am currently running Proxmox 5.4-3 so ideally I should have the following in my sources.list:

deb stretch main contrib # PVE pve-no-subscription repository provided by, # NOT recommended for production use deb stretch pve-no-subscription # security updates deb stretch/updates main contrib

However this is the case already so after some checking it looks like there is another file that is in another directory. This file is located at "/etc/apt/aources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list" This is an enterprise only sources list with a single entry deb stretch pve-enterprise So I commented that out and saved the file.

I reran the command "apt-get update" and encountered no errors. So hopefully it should all be working correctly now.

Installing and Setting up Chyrp Lite


Since I needed a way to document my installations and such on my personal server and websites because I'll eventually mess up and have to rebuild the whole thing (already happened once) I started looking for a blogging platform.

I decided to go with Chyrp Lite for my blog of choice. Hopefully it'll work out (if this site is currently not using Chyrp then you'll know it didn't.


I first created a new subdomain and SQL database on my website

Then I downloaded the latest release of Chyrp from the github repository. At the time of writing it was v2019.02. After downloading I used FileZilla to connect via FTP to my website's new subdomain folder and uploaded the contents of the release to it.

After that I just entered the line into my browsers url bar and I was taken to the installation page. I typed in the information of the database I created earlier and voila, I had a working blog.

This was a very simple install and I'm glad I was able to get it working. What took the longest was determining what software to use and that running it on an LXC wouldn't be the best idea right now. Good thing I already had a website through an outside host!

I realize now that blogging/documenting my projects is going to be a lot of work. But it has to be done so I'll just have to get used to it!
