I am using python 2.7. I tried the sudo apt-get install python-configobj resulting in an error:
Err http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ weezy/main python-configobj all 4.7.7+ds-4 404 not found Failed to fetch http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/c/configobj/python-configobj_4.7.2+ds-4_all.deb 404 not found E: unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing. I did try apt-get update --fix-missing with no benefit. this has to be something simple that I am unaware of. thanks for your patience and time, Mike On Sunday, February 2, 2020 at 9:52:51 AM UTC-5, david glenn wrote: > > I am new to weewx and have very basic linux and python skills.
