For the Regolith 2.1 release, the host name of the URL from which
apt pulls packages has changed. The new hostname is
regolith-desktop.org. In order to update to Regolith 2.1 and get fixes and upgrades going forward kindly update your apt configuration.
deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/regolith-archive-keyring.gpg] https://regolith-desktop.io/release-ubuntu-jammy-amd64 testing main ^ | (this changes to '.org')
deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/regolith-archive-keyring.gpg] https://regolith-desktop.org/release-ubuntu-jammy-amd64 testing main
All other aspects of the package configuration remain the same including the key used to verify packages.
Additional Info #
The Regolith 2.1 release reintroduced the ISO form of distribution. In order to generate the ISO with the production
apt URL the packages needed to be published first. This essentially required a way of publishing the release before we wish users to get access to the packages. In order to achieve this the idea of using a URL and switching the host seemed like a good idea. Problems occurred when the realities of TLS cert management became apparent. When the domain was remapped to the new host, the TLS certificates were not. Later, when the problem became known, the hosting provider gave advice on how to resolve the problem. However, the original source domain name (
regolith-desktop.io) somehow is not able to take a new cert registration from the new host. Some remedies have been suggested by users, but due to the nature of the production host we opted to leave the system as-is and migrate to the new domain to prevent further churn for users.
When the 2.1 release was published, the URL was updated to
regolith-desktop.org. Users still using
regolith-desktop.io will most likely be stuck on the 2.0 release unless the TLS certificate issue is ignored or in some way resolved.
