Subject description: pet-noarch packages can't see their repositories
 

I can install pets from ubuntu-xenial-main, -multiverse and -universe but pet-noarch only points to a local folder. My internet connection is working. What am I missing?

Thanks guys!

I take it you've already tried doing a Update for your packagemanager. Making sure they are ticked on the right side before you run it.

Then have a look in /root/.packages/ (hidden directory so use the eye to see it) for a file called DISTRO_PET_REPOS.

if it's gone, that's your problem

if it's there look inside and see what it says. They should be listed at least once with acceptable url path.

It would be nice to know what puppy and version your working with buy the way if you need further help.

Puppy Package Manager>Configure>Update Database

Make sure the repositories you want are checked.
Select Update now

Hello minimalist.

If you are dissatisfied with the regular PPM, you can try mistfire's
outstanding CLI tool for this, called "Puppy-get". It's here.

But updating, etc., those steps remain the same.

IHTH.
