Unable to Upgrade from Harvest 1.2.2 to 1.3 (VA)

[ Edited ]

Hello, I have a debian based Harvest installation 1.2.2 which I want to update but during SW prerequisite installation it complains about it.

 

# sudo apt-get -y install unzip perl libjson-perl libwww-perl \
> libxml-parser-perl liblwp-protocol-https-perl \
> libexcel-writer-xlsx-perl

Package libexcel-writer-xlsx-perl is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libexcel-writer-xlsx-perl' has no installation candidate

#

 

Are there additional sources needed?

Re: Unable to Upgrade from Harvest 1.2.2 to 1.3 (VA)

Got it working.

 

Cause: I think it was caused by trying to install netapp-harvest before installing the prerequisite filesets.

 

The fileset for perl were downlevel but could not be updated because of the netapp-harvest program was locking it out.

 

Solution:

Soved it by uninstall netapp-harvest fileset. (make a backup of netapp-harvest.conf before!!!)

 

apt-get remove netapp-harvest

 

 

Then

sudo apt-get -y install unzip perl libjson-perl libwww-perl \
> libxml-parser-perl liblwp-protocol-https-perl \
> libexcel-writer-xlsx-perl

 

Then, reinstall netapp-harvest.

Hi @F_SCHUBERT,

 

Glad you got it working!

 

dpkg doesn't pull in dependencies automatically so you either need to meet them before you start, or run 'apt-get -f install' after to get dependencies resolved.

 

Here is an example of installing Harvest without having the pre-requisites yet and then using apt-get to install them afterwords:
