[2.0.4] Autoupdater fails due to missing MD5 on github

Post by thh » Mon Sep 26, 2016 1:23 pm

Using the auto-update for the 2.0.4 update didn't work for me:
Checking MD5 zip file checksum:
Error. Could not verify the update.
See https://www.dropbox.com/s/vo19bx1zjc86u ... 4.png?dl=0.

Not much time just yet - is this a known problem? Something I could check (or change) on my site?

Can't really help with it, but http://board.s9y.org/viewtopic.php?p=10446195#p10446195 has the same issue. I guess the question is whether this is an issue with the autoupdater or the checksum.

The latter. https://github.com/s9y/Serendipity/releases/tag/2.0.4 does not have that checksum. :) The updater is looking for "MD5: $checksum". https://github.com/s9y/Serendipity/releases/tag/2.0.3 has it, the 2.0.4 release does not.

The release process is dark and full or terrors. :wink:

Garvin should have a look at this, I really don't know much about it.

I think there are two problems. First there must not be two different releases in one github-release (official and beta in this case). Second, the MD5 has to be added manualy to the release text (with "MD5:bla") as thh stated.

Summary: Garvin has to take a look at this. :lol:

Hey,

I added the MD5, does that help now?

I'm getting the MD5 error when trying to update from 2.0.4 to 2.0.5 today. Perhaps this issue is related to this?
I make s9y plugins, too.
My s9y blog depends on them. :)

Hm, does it tell you a checksum that it compares against? I should have entered the right checksum on the release page...

Code: Select all

Checking MD5 zip file checksum: ea6034d854f5f74a3e472f7f7122bf3f

Error. Could not verify the update.
This is what I'm getting. On a related note, plugin updates aren't working with this error:

Code: Select all

 The URL https://raw.github.com/s9y/additional_plugins/master/package_sidebar_en.xml (IP 151.101.100.133) could not be opened. Maybe the Serendipity or SourceForge.net Server is down - we are sorry, you need to try again later.
I wonder if this is related? I have no problem accessing the file on the web browser that the server is running on, so I'm perplexed as to why s9y says it couldn't open it.
I make s9y plugins, too.

Since no one responded to this issue, I just did a manual update to 2.0.5. I hope this doesn't happen again with 2.0.6 or future versions.

I'll have an eye on this. Sorry.

The Plugin updates are still not working for you?
