Apt_repository addition problem (openvpn)


I have problem with openvpn repo adding

apt_repository 'openvpn' do
  uri          'http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn'
  distribution node['lsb']['codename']
  components   ['main', 'stable']
  keyserver    'https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo-public.gpg'

apt_package 'openvpn' do
  version '2.4.2'

This code generates /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvpn.list
deb "http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn" xenial main stable
And apt-get update command fails.
If I modify file in the way specified here
deb http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable xenial main
I get public key verification failure. After adding it manually, apt-get update is successful.
What is wrong in my code?


you should remove the stable part of the list of components.


It didn’t help

deb “http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn” xenial main

Right, so look at the URI you’re expecting: http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable and the URI you’re passing to the resource: http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn, and make the two the same.


Thanks, now I have “repo is not signed” problem.
I specified keyserver.




are the same


This helped

If you just have the URL for a key and not the key signature you can simply specify the URL in the key attribute

So this code works

apt_repository 'openvpn' do
  uri          'http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable'
  distribution node['lsb']['codename']
  components   ['main']
  key    'http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/stable/pubkey.gpg'

apt_package 'openvpn' do
  version '2.4.2-xenial0'
