I'm trying to upgrade my QGIS to the latest Testing (2.99) version via a complete reinstall.
I did this before by removing it first using
sudo apt-get remove qgis* grass*
But now, I can get past this first step because I encounter an error saying something like:
E: Unable to locate package qgis-examples
, and there is a similar error about not being able to locate
apt-get. This prevents anything including a
apt-get install -s. I've tried to revert back to a much earlier OSGeo Live VM (10.5) back in April/2017 when it was first released. Still, the same errors occur.
I don't understand how this could have happened. I've removed
grass before without an issue (and had an older version of QGIS 2.99 successfully installed).
Has anyone encountered a similar issue when removing
qgis, or know a fix for this error?
