Error while installing DSE in the DS210 course VM


I am seeing the following error messages while executing:

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

Hi @rohithsolomon,

we made some changes to the repository access since the academy course was released, and we now no longer require the academy credentials for access.

For up-to-date installation instructions see this page:

I am referring especially to the change in step 4 where we removed the need for academy credentials.

With these steps I installed DSE successfully onto the DS210 VM.

Let us know how it goes.

Perfect! Thank You, Bettina. Its working fine now Looks like the instructions in the "Exercise Folder" inside the VM have the same instructions you mentioned. I followed the ones provided in the academy course which caused the error.

To add to Bettina's answer, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

I have requested the PDF copy in the DS210 course's Resources menu be replaced with the more up-to-date copy included in the DS210 VM image. Cheers!
