I'm brave enough to try out the upgrade from wheezy to jessie on my pi according to this: Upgrade to Raspbian Jessie

So far it runs pretty smooth, except that I get an error when updating the repositories here:

Any idea? It does not seem to break anything really, but I still would like to resolve the error.

  • @user75047 I think I just removed the failing apt sources in the end, the pi is still running smooth today

As far as I am aware collabora is still using wheezy based software, it has not been upgraded to jessie.

If you want to use that repository change its entry back to wheezy from jessie.

    Now that the official Jessie image has been released in november, the Collabora repository is still based on wheezy. Is there any chance that it will be updated? Can it create any conflict? Should I remove it? Jan 27, 2016 at 10:08
