import from github fails

Asked by Cecilio Salmeron on 2018-07-23

I'm reopening this question

I have tried again today and the problem persists.

The log information is not meaningful to me so I do not know what to do to fix this. Please, help me!

Since I moved the repos to github in 2016 I'm being unable to prepare packages for Ubuntu. I would like to update packages for more recent Ubuntu versions but without your help this will not be possible.

Thank you.

Do you actually need an import specifically to Bazaar? These days you can do an import to a Launchpad-hosted git repository and use source package recipes based on that, which is generally a much more robust operation as there are fewer things to go wrong.

No, I wouldn't mind changing the type of repo. at Launchpad. Currently, the only service I need from Launchpad is the PPA and the ability to build packages for the different Ubuntu versions.

How should I do it?

Just watch out for; it's easy to work around but a bit confusing when you aren't expecting it.
