I am attempting to install blender on essentially a new Raspberry Pi 4. After running both
apt-get update and
apt-get upgrade, I get the following error message when running
apt-get install blender:
Err:1 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster/main armhf mariadb-common all 1:10.3.23-0+deb10u1 404 Not Found [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80] Err:2 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster/main armhf libmariadb3 armhf 1:10.3.23-0+deb10u1 404 Not Found [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80] Err:3 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster/main armhf libxerces-c3.2 armhf 3.2.2+debian-1+b1 404 Not Found [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80] E: Failed to fetch http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/pool/main/m/mariadb-10.3/mariadb-common_10.3.23-0+deb10u1_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80] E: Failed to fetch http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/pool/main/m/mariadb-10.3/libmariadb3_10.3.23-0+deb10u1_armhf.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80] E: Failed to fetch http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/pool/main/x/xerces-c/libxerces-c3.2_3.2.2+debian-1+b1_armhf.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80] E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
apt-get update --fix-missing followed by the same install blender command produces the same result.
My only clue as to what was wrong was the following message I get when doing
E: Repository 'http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'stable' to 'oldstable' N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
I researched this error and found that this was due to a compatibility issue related to a recent debian release (bullseye) that has not yet fully made it to the pi. I ran the update script found on this post:
and retried the install of blender. The install of blender was successful, but upon launching it, it says that it requires opengl 3.3 which is beyond the capacity of the pi. Blender.org says that blender version 2.79 should not require such a recent version of opengl, but when I do:
apt-get install blender=2.79.b+dfsg0-7 -V
then I get the same error as when previously installing blender.
What do I do? I am the faculty advisor of a high school computer club using these things!
