UNSOLVED trying to update to 1.3.1 RC 1 - get Copying binaries where needed...............................Failed!

  • I am trying to update my copy of FOG like I always have been for months now, and I am getting an error message that I have not see before:

     * Unzipping the binaries......................................Done
     * Copying binaries where needed...............................Failed!

    Any ideas what’s going on?


    • FOG Version: 1.3.0-RC-37
    • OS: Ubuntu 16.04
    • Service Version:
    • OS:

  • @Wayne-Workman
    That did the trick - thanks! (the mysql stuff worked just as it is)

  • @Tom-Elliott And then re-running the installer.

    @LibraryMark Also, I notice your mysql username is wrong (or not working).

    The database typically uses root for the username. if you have a Root user password you should set this.

    This can be set in /opt/fog/.fogsettings for snmysqlusername and snmysqlpassword.

    To install 1.3.1-RC-1 you will need to change branches with:

    git checkout dev-branch

    Then run the installer.

  • Install log end:

  • What’s the output of git branch? * master

    I am using GIT.

    What does the installer log show?

    What’s the output of git branch?

    Binaries are downloaded directly instead of inserted via a zip file when on dev-branch. So these lines shouldn’t even be present.

    How are you trying to install? Are you using GIT or SVN?
