How to update qbittorrent-nox on arm64 Debian?

Post by chairgoesthere »

I was on the ppa launchpad page and saw there was a debian-installer folder, but I'm not sure how to get it to load so that I may update qbittorrent-nox to 4.2.5. I did add the ppa repository to sources.list and I put bionic as the distro, since I am on debian buster (armbian distro on odroid n2).
http://ppa.launchpad.net/qbittorrent-te ... ary-arm64/

I updated the sources.list to add:

Code: Select all

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable/ubuntu/ bionic debian-installer main
and I ran the following command:
sudo apt-get update --allow-insecure-repositories

Code: Select all

Get:7 http://ppa.launchpad.net/qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable/ubuntu bionic/main armhf Packages [3,006 B]
Get:8 http://ppa.launchpad.net/qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable/ubuntu bionic/main arm64 Packages [2,992 B]
Fetched 5,998 B in 2s (3,728 B/s)
Reading package lists... Done

If I leave out the 'debian-installer' in the sources.list, then it doesn't do anything, as if everything is already updated:

Code: Select all

Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster InRelease
Hit:2 http://security.debian.org buster/updates InRelease
Hit:4 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates InRelease
Hit:5 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-backports InRelease
Hit:3 https://mirrors.fossho.st/armbian/apt buster InRelease
Hit:6 http://ppa.launchpad.net/qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Reading package lists... Done
Any idea what I did wrong? Would it be easier if I just install Ubuntu (armbian focal) on my arm64 device?

Thank you for any help.

Hi,

Have you tried up to Eoan, last version in line with Eoan? With a former PPA installation I did the thing this way but never added "debian-installer"
However different PPA and software so this is not a very effective remark.

About your last question this is the way I'll take with a setup based on RPI4. With an Ubuntu based setup such issue will not be a problem anymore
As the odroid is I think capable of running the GUI part too, it may worth the consideration, up to you of course: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=9198
My post was not very popular however I tested it this way: RPI4+Ubuntu 20.04LTS+Ubuntudesktop+RealVNC. I've so the full featured QBT and the Webui for the day to day usage.

I ended up doing a fresh install with ubuntu. No problems at all installing the latest qbittorrent. I wish I knew how much pain Debian was going to be for the sake of stability. Lesson learned! Thanks for your help!

The same here, reason of a dedicated Ubuntu setup too :).

Glad you sort it out

PPA is for Ubuntu, not Debian.
But I found a thing like this, just a few hours ago.

https://github.com/userdocs/qbittorrent-nox-static

You may want to check that one out.
(I use Qt/desktop so not much use for me.)
