Post Swift messenger.


Hello.
I'm using Debian 8.6 x64 and I like to install "Swift" messenger but it show me an error:
Code:
W: Failed to fetch https://swift.im/packages/debian/jessie/dists/release/main/source/Sources  HttpError404

W: Failed to fetch https://swift.im/packages/debian/jessie/dists/release/main/binary-amd64/Packages  HttpError404

W: Failed to fetch https://swift.im/packages/debian/jessie/dists/release/main/binary-i386/Packages  HttpError404
Any idea?

Thank you.

The
Code:
HttpError404
is a "File not found" error from the web server. Essentially, those are not valid URLs.

Agreed. Put the URL's into a web browser on another host and you'll see that they aren't valid.

Installing on Linux should be done following these directions: http://swift.im/downloads.html

Except that you will find that those instructions include, for Debian 8, adding the following to the software sources:

Code:
deb https://swift.im/packages/debian/jessie release main
deb-src https://swift.im/packages/debian/jessie release main
which is probably what the OP did (although they provided us with insufficient information on how they had in fact tried to install the package).

So, it looks as if the Swift IM repos are currently down. Whether that is temporary or more permanent is another question. I would advise OP to either install Swift IM through their git repository or from source. If they don't feel capable of that, then they should contact Swift about their issue.

Yes, it's possible that's what they did. However, the URL's for the repo's are very different from the URL's they posted. So, it's unclear what's already been done. We definitely need more info.

This now appears to be a -different- install attempt than the original post, and you haven't told us whether you've actually tried the documented install process that I posted a link to.

Problem solved by running below command:
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential pkg-config libssl-dev qt5-default libqt5x11extras5-dev libqt5webkit5-dev qtmultimedia5-dev qttools5-dev-tools qt5-image-formats-plugins libqt5svg5-dev libminiupnpc-dev libnatpmp-dev libhunspell-dev
I found it in "./BuildTools/InstallSwiftDependencies.sh".
