    Question BT5 apt-get upgrade > w3af failure

    Good day

    I have been trying to update my BT5 but to no avail.
    Scouring the internet in search of the solution has not helped my cause either.

    I have successfully updated my BT5 in the past and use the system variable (http_proxy) to store my proxy settings.

    When I attempt updating, I get this:
    apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Hi,

    Your problem is most likely, that you need to setup the proxy for svn. That solved the issue in my case. Try to remove & install again, just to make sure after you have set it up.

    BR,

    Hi all, I'm having this issue as well. Anyone know how to fix other than formatting and starting all over again? I really dont want to do that.

    It doesn't look like anyone has suggest this option yet so I'll post it in the hope that it helps.

    Doing a little reading back through what the error says when I run
    Code:
    dpkg --configure -a
    I come across a post install script located in /var/lib/dpkg/info/w3af.postinst

    This says it's looking a file in /tmp. This file was likely cleaned out after a previous install attempt that (for some reason I don't know right now) failed. To get this working again simply run:

    Code:
    wget http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/p/pybloomfiltermmap/pybloomfiltermmap-0.2.0.tar.gz
    That won't take long at all as it's a tiny file. Then re-run:

    Code:
    dpkg --configure -a
    It'll find the file in your /tmp and finish it's business...
