Public bug reported: Today I created a new VirtualBox with 22.04 to move my build server on a newer version of Ubuntu.
When I install my package to create my build server, one of the steps is to create the build environment for each platform I want to support. The command line I come up with looks like this: pbuilder-dist jammy create --updates-only --mirror http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu --extrapackages "apt-utils lsb-release vim apt-transport-https ca-certificates eatmydata" That runs up to the point where it tries to do the equivalent of "apt- get update" (I'm not too sure which command is used for that purpose). The command fails with an error saying that "pbuilder/jammy_result/./Packages" does not exist. If I create that file before I call the create command, the build works. In older versions of pbuilder-dist, I did not have to create that file. I think this is a pretty major issue. To bypass the issue I just create the directory and that Packages file: mkdir -p pbuilder/jammy_result touch pbuilder/jammy_result/Packages just before invoking "pbuilder-dist jammy create ...". Then it works as expected. ** Affects: ubuntu-dev-tools (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of MOTU, which is subscribed to ubuntu-dev-tools in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1993969 Title: "pbuilder-dist create ..." fails unless I create the "Packages" file ahead of call To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-dev-tools/+bug/1993969/+subscriptions -- universe-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/universe-bugs
