Title: Unable to Download Repository
Post by: mlamb1 on 2019 October 12 07:50:57
I am a very new user of PI, and I have not been able to install outside scripts, but I get an error:

Unable to download repository information.
https://www.skypixel...HVB_Repository/:
Network error: Response code = 404

I get this error upon PI startup and if I try Check for Updates.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Look at:
https://pixinsight.com/forum/index.php?topic=13637.msg82163#msg82163 (https://pixinsight.com/forum/index.php?topic=13637.msg82163#msg82163)

A serach for HVB_Repository would also help ....
or simply remove one "s" ...

I changed to http: (e.g. removed the s), but it still did not load, though the error code changed:

http://www.skypixels.com/HVB_Repository/:
Network error: Response code = 301

Ok in this case  if you want to access and download the HVB scripts directly i recommend:
http://www.skypixels.at/pixinsight_scripts.html (http://www.skypixels.at/pixinsight_scripts.html)

If you want to update the repository of your installation you need to
start
in PI
Resources
  Update
    Manage Repositories

and here you enter or change the url to   without "s"

Please change .com to .at as written on the web page

I changed the .com to .at, as well as going back to https: and it loaded

Note, that the website shows .com, as that was what I cut/pasted from.  However, the example windows showed .at

Thanks!

That's really confusing. When I open that page, I see .at.

The ".com" was in the paragraphs in the body of the webpage; it is ".at" in the example windows below, as shown by other's screenshots above.

Another confusion was where I cut/paste from, there was "/to" at the end address.  I assumed that the "to" was an error and it was just missing a space in the sentence.  I saw the sample example window did not have the appended "to", so I did not include it.  I did NOT inspect the entire address in the example window to notice it was ".at" instead of the ".com" in prior paragraph text.

I always cut/paste these address to avoid possible errors, and the sentence in the paragraph (with the ".com") allowed me to cut/paste.
