I'm trying to do a simple sudo apt-get update on my Raspberry Pi 2, but I keep getting 404 error:

W: Failed to fetch https://dev2day.de/pms/dists/jessie/main/binary-armhf/Packages HttpError404

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

My source.list file containes the following repo:

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

and I have Jessie version of Raspbian installed.

I tried changing the repo to the newest version (stretch), but didn't solve the problem.

Anyone knows how to solve this?

    Jessie is obsolete and unsupported. It has had NO updates for years and never will.

Plex media server has shut down the repository at https://dev2day.de/. They have moved to https://downloads.plex.tv/repo/deb. This page provides the installation instructions, in essence, you need to run:

echo deb https://downloads.plex.tv/repo/deb public main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list
curl https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-keys/PlexSign.key | sudo apt-key add -

I have no idea if they support Jessie though.

    Looking at the error msg the problem seems to be in the 'pms' (hat's probably plex media server) source list, not the Raspbian one

  • @Dirk I have plex media server installed Commented Sep 19, 2019 at 9:32
  • @amicoderozer Then I would check if there's a source entry in sources.list or a pms list file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d. At a guess I would say the PMS Jessie repo was removed resulting in the error msg.

  • @Dirk You are right, I have this entry in pms.list file: deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main Commented Sep 19, 2019 at 9:43
  • @amicoderozer Then you should remove it. Commented Sep 19, 2019 at 9:44
