Ftp2.parrot.biz/deb has changed?

Hello, I have noticed that

sudo apt-get update 

return this error:

The repository ‘ftp://ftp2.parrot.biz/deb focal/ Release’ no longer has a Release file

I also have problem to get latest firmware or to follow The sphinx installation procedure. For example this step:

 curl -fsSL ftp://<myuser>:<mypassword>@ftp2.parrot.biz/gpg | sudo apt-key add -

returns gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

Did something changed on ftp2.parrot.biz? Or maybe I am doing something wrong?

Thank you

We are sorry but the FTP server is currently down. We are currently working to bring it back up. In parallel, we are also speeding things up for an alternative distribution solution we were initially planning for September.

I’ll keep you informed as soon as I have more info.


Hi @sfres ,

You should now be able to install sphinx from our new public apt repo :

echo "deb http://debian.parrot.com/ $(lsb_release -cs) main generic" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.parrot.com.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install parrot-sphinx

You may also remove the previous ftp2.parrot.biz repo from your source.list
