Hi, is it still possible to install mce-tools? I encountered this:

Fatal error: File './mw/armv7hl/mce-tools-1.62.5-1.51.1.armv7hl.rpm' not found on medium 'https://releases.jolla.com/releases/latest/jolla/armv7hl/'

EDIT - problem solved. Long story in comments below. Short story here:

  1. Check release with ssu s, update to actual OS release if required with ssu release x.x.x.xx (devel-su required). Note: 'latest' is not correct.
  2. If release updated, execute version --dup
  3. Perform pkcon refresh (pkcon update isn't enough)
  4. Perform pkcon install mce-tools
  5. Install GUI for mcetool (Openrepos)

Bottomline: I have no idea of the reason why my OS release number went wrong.

@objectifnul - I just tried this, you're right, I get exactly the same message, so I did this and now mce-tools is installed:

pkcon install mce-tests - let it do its thing, then:

pkcon install mce-tools, should install without error.

Type mcetool --help for more commands.

Thanks. Still same "not found" error :(

(also with zypper instead of pkcon)

Looks like the repository has been messed up.

That's odd, perhaps there are dependencies.

I double checked, removed mce-tools, did pkcon install mce-tools, then ran a command to enable LPM mode - works fine.

Try running pkcon update then pkcon install mce-tools

Time for a Zendesk ticket, perhaps?
