Hello,

Would you please tell us more details on your issue? Are you trying it on Turris Omnia? I’ve just tried it on the TO and I don’t have any issues with it.

Do not use containers on internal flash, they can wear it down really fast!!!

Didn’t you try to install LXC 2.0 from OpenWRT?

Hi,

lxc-create --version
1.1.5

curl “https://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/
index-system.2
index-system.2.asc

ERROR: Failed to download http://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/index-system

Wrong index-system files in repo.turris.cz ?

Any updates to this?

I’m also running currently into this issue. LXC seems to try connecting over http:// and then cannot handle the permanently move (301) response.

I’m currently running lxc 1.1.5 on Turris Omnia 3.10.5.

I have tried to create new lxc container today, and I can see pretty much the same.
Please can somebody have a look into it?

Hi there,

I am afraid that this issue is not solved yet: LXC: lxc-create fails due to missing SSL support

This is what is happening on my Turris Omnia:

root@turris:~# lxc-create --name test-container -t download

ERROR: Failed to download http://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/index-system

3.10.5
root@turris:~# cat /etc/config/lxc
#
# lxc uci configuration
#

config lxc 'lxc'
	option url 'repo.turris.cz/lxc'

This is my first post here. Please let me know if you need any further information. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Running into the same issue currently.

Same here. wget version 1.19.5-1 is installed.
It’s strange, because I already setup three containers previously, which are running fine.
Lucis’ “just_want_to_list_available_lxc_templates” also does not obtain a list of templates.
And https://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/index-system only gives 404.

I’ll join the choir; experiencing same issue.

Trying to instal anything from LXC repo yelds

ERROR: Failed to download http://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/index-system

lxc-create: lxc_create.c: main: 274 Error creating container name_of_lxc_container

Quickfix:

  1. edit line 44 from /usr/share/lxc/templates/lxc-download
    DOWNLOAD_SHOW_HTTP_WARNING="false"
  2. use this command,
    lxc-create -n debian10 -t download -B best -- -d Debian -r Buster -a armv7l --no-validate

-d Debian (distribution)
-r Buster (release)

are case sensitive and can be found in the original repo, here:
https://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/index-system.2

Long fix: Github issue #85

Thank you for the fix, I’ll give it a try in a minute.
But frankly, this has to be fixed very soon!
Did anyone test if lxc works again in 3.10.6 RC?

Edit: Works! Even without DOWNLOAD_SHOW_HTTP_WARNING="false"

Hello,

We’ve managed to reproduce it, and @miska is working on it.
If there’d be anything new, I’ll tell you.

We don’t need to release another RC or version to fix it. :slight_smile:

Very cool, thank you!

Should be fixed now.

for me it still doesn´t work with these commands:

lxc-create -t download -n pi-hole

Can you tell me, if the output is the same or different?
Would you please try to restart your router and try it again?

Hi, as far as I remember the repository path is now different but it still doesn´t work, just rebooted too.

Here is what I get:

root@turris:~# lxc-create -t download -n pi-hole
Setting up the GPG keyring

ERROR: Failed to download http://https://repo.turris.cz/lxc/meta/1.0/index-system.2//meta/1.0/index-system

lxc-create: lxc_create.c: main: 274 Error creating container pi-hole

thanks

I think you have manually altered the repo URL by adding “https://” before… now you should undo it.

It is working by now, problem with LXC utilities. Somehow their configuration wasn´t truly integrated although checked.
thanks to Turris team

I am running Turris OS version 3.11.2, just installed LXC and I get this error:

root@turris:~# lxc-create -t download -n intermodal
Setting up the GPG keyring
Downloading the image index
ERROR: Failed to download http://repo.turris.cz/lxc//meta/1.0/index-system

lxc-create: lxc_create.c: main: 274 Error creating container intermodal

Am I doing something wrong? I tried the quick workaround (setting DOWNLOAD_SHOW_HTTP_WARNING to “false” in /usr/share/lxc/templates/lxc-download ) and it did not help either – would I have to reload a configutation somewhere for it to take effect?

edit:

is it please?
