Cannot update
#1
Hi,

I am not sure if it is an error from my end or the apk database has become unavailable. Since a few days ago I got errors while trying to update and upgrade via the terminal:

ERROR: Unable to lock database: temporary error (try again later)

ERROR: Failed to open apk database: temporary error (try again later)

My current /etc/apk/repositories :
http://mirror.postmarketos.org/postmarketos/master
http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/main
http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/community
http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/testing

Try to Re-flash and update, upgrade.  Worked for me, only took an hour.

Thanks for your reply. The apk update and upgrade link has resumed today.
