unable to install nagios on ubuntu 11.04

Asked by laurent bouis on 2012-05-31

Hi,

I am having issues installing nagios on ubuntu 11.04 on an ec2 server.

I get 404s errors, see below, when i run 'sudo apt-get install -y nagios3' :

any clue? (I am new to ubuntu).
I read at https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?threadID=95616, that there were issues with the ubuntu repository server, but wasn't able to work around it, not sure if it's still the cause of this.

sudo apt-get install -y nagios3

If you run:

echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf > /dev/null

sudo apt-get udpate

Then retry, does it work ok?

yes that worked! Nagios basic installation is completed now.

thanks a lot!

Can you explain to me what the issue was?

Your DNS that you are using sucks, editing that file to use a different DNS to change the name to the right IP which is all the issue was. If you get the same issue later then use this guide:

https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

The file is generated when you connect to the a network so manually changing it is only a temp fix. You need to edit network manager to tell it to use the Google DNS for the connection.
