Hello Osmo Community,

I'm new here, trying to install SIM Trace v2 on a brand new Ubuntu 18.04 and getting the below error.
Anyone has an idea of what the problem is?

When trying to install the binary this is the result after applying the procedure suggested in the Wiki:

It doesn't look like there is anything wrong with your setup, except for the additional file ending with "listes" that is not supposed to be there.

roh, please try to reproduce e.g. in a Ubuntu lxc or vm and investigate, thanks!

as hoernchen wrote: the file has to end in .list

not .lists, listed or anything else.

.listed generates an error and is superfluous anyhow since we only have one feed per distro.

i tested this on a ubuntu vm, since i wanted to make sure they don't patch anything in difference to debian - but it behaves exactly the same.

the fix is simple: delete /etc/apt/sources.list.d/osmocom-latest.listes
