Build succeeds but upload fails with Unknown Component

Asked by Timescale on 2018-02-26

I am trying to build PostgreSQL 9.6.7 for Bionic and it succeeds until it tries to uploads, where I get the message "Unknown component '9.6'". Any advice on how to resolve this?

Here is the most recent uploadlog:

I assume it is the value of "Section" in your control file that contains unexpected contents ('9.6/libdevel' instead of 'libdevel')

You have "Section: 9.6/libdevel" and "Section: 9.6/libs" in various places in debian/control, which isn't allowed in Launchpad PPAs (perhaps you copied this source package from some other archive where that's permitted). I'd suggest just dropping the "9.6/" prefix there.

Ah thanks for the tip. Yes I was copying from their own repository but forgot to change that. Thanks!
