On http://nightly.odoo.com there is an new banches (8.0 Stable).

I try to do install acording to the website instruction, buf fail when do the "sudo apt-get update". My Ubuntu fail to fetch the site, why? Please help.

Thanks + Regards,


I just take a look files contained in http://nightly.odoo.com/8.0/nightly/deb/ . There is no file names Packages.gz in the folder. I think this is the reason mu Ubuntu fail to fetch the site (CMIIW). Is there anyone can provide us this Packages.gz file?

Have you consider install from source / repo? This way is more flexible and easier to maintain yourself.

The release candidate posted there can't be installed the way you are trying.  You need to directly download the package archive or tar file instead.

Now there is a Pachages.gz file in the repo, and you can install with "apt-get install openerp, " but only  once.  Subsequently calling "apt-get upgrade" never updates the installed package, because even though new nightly builds are being added to the directory, with filenames indicating their build dates, the Pachages.gz file as well as the build backages themselvs always internally contain "Version: 8.0.0~rc1-0."   Thus the only way I can see to update from the .deb package is to manually download it and force it to install via dpkg.  I presume this is an oversight, since it does not make any sense to have an apt repository with new content every day while the version numbers never change.
