Error Use Zimbra's package repository

Postby Charly » Thu Mar 01, 2018 4:57 pm

Hi I started to install ZCS, and I followed the instructions "How to Install Zimbra Collaboration 8.8 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS", I did everything but when install Zimbra I get this ERROR:

Use Zimbra's package repository [Y] y

Configuring package repository
ERROR: Unable to install packages via apt-get
Please fix system to allow normal package installation before proceeding

I have looked about this ERROR but I can´t find a solution

What can I do?

what happens when you run "sudo apt-get update"? are you able to install other packaged with apt-get?

this doesnt sound like a zimbra installer program but your sever (or a firewall somewhere) is blocking itself from receiving the files from the zimbra repository server.

I have the same error as Charly when i try to upgrade from 8.8.9 to 8.8.12 in Ubuntu 14.04.

The apt-get works properly and the /tmp/install.log doesn't help me (no errors found).

Charly, did you solve the problem??? Any one can help me??

Thanks in advance.
