Can't install Syncthing b/c of "release file"

  • FreedomBox plugged into router.
  • Recently bought new kit.
  • Running Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) and FreedomBox version 21.4.

I’m trying to install Syncthing. I get the following error: “E: The repository ‘Index of /debian-security stable/updates Release’ no longer has a Release file.”

I tried SSH into FreedomBox then running: sudo apt-update
Still no luck.

So, how do I install Syncthing?

You can either modify your /etc/apt/sources.list as stated in this answer -

Or install the latest Pioneer image built for Debian 11 (Bullseye) from here:

When I opened FreedomBox later, it had updated to Debian 11 (Bullseye) on its own (probably through an auto-update). I was able to install Syncthing after that.
