opkg_download: Failed to download wget returned 8

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am trying to run opkg_update and I am receiving the following error:

I have added the 3 lines to the /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf file, then saved and closed:

src/gz all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all src/gz edison

http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison src/gz

core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32

I also ran ifconfig and I am connected to the internet. I can ping successfully to www.cnn.com, for example.

Does anyone have any ideas why I am having these issues updating opkg?

Thanks for your help!

I fixed my own problem. Here is what was wrong:

My /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf file was not entered in the correct format. I had to put each src/gz on it's own individual line!

src/gz all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all

src/gz edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison

src/gz core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32

Hai everyone,

I'm using 3.10.98 image http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-intel-edison/about/ meta-intel-edison - Layer for the Intel Edison Development Platform and trying to install opkg but I'm getting the same errors as shown in the screenshots and I thought if it is the network problem and followed the thread /message/276951# 276951 "wget returned 4" during opkg update but there is no output and I cant install opkg on my edison.I tried a lot of ways by keeping the various links but there seems to be no output such as

/message/365327# 365327 opkg_download: Failed to download wget returned 8 ,http://alextgalileo.altervista.org/edison-package-repo-configuration-instructions.html Edison Package Repo Configuration Instructions ,/thread/55692 Edison opkg package repo created

In /etc/opkg/ base-feeds.conf initially there are no links and I added the links below on base-feeds.conf

src/gz all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all

src/gz edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison

src/gz core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32

and in iotkit-conf also I added the link in iotkit-conf

src iotkit http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/2.0/intelgalactic http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.0/intelgalactic

and there is the output shown in the screenshots and the links which are added are active when I use ping on another tab.

Can you please let me know ,How can I get the output and which links to be added and install opkg without any errors,any or everyhelp is appreciated.Thanks in Advance.

Thanks and Regards,

Radhika
