I am having some difficulty installing Asterisk on a 64bit Server. I get the following error and cant seem to find help about this.

Failed to fetch http://za.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openais/libsaevt3_1.1.4-4_amd64.deb  Hash Sum mismatch

My steps:

  • Remove /var/lib/apt/lists/*
  • Remove /var/cache/apt/lists/partial... failed file
  • apt-get clean
  • apt-get update

Outcome: Failed

Next step: Download the libsaevt.deb package and use dkpg -i to install package

Outcome: Failed

Please help!

Are you sure about asterisk here? libsaevt belongs to openais which is a cluster frame work and shares no dependency with asterisk. –  qbi Jan 8 '13 at 11:05
Using sudo apt-get install asterisk, installs the packages but halfway through the installation I get the error? Should I rather manually compile asterisk? Or how can I perform the sudo apt-get install without apt trying to install libsaevt? –  Franna Jan 8 '13 at 11:25
Does apt-get update run without failure? If no, what is the exact error message? What is the error message if your run dpkg -i libsaevt…? –  qbi Jan 8 '13 at 11:35
Yes it does, I managed to get it fixed thanks. There was a missing dependency for libsaevt that I did not install. It works now without any problems. This question can be closed –  Franna Jan 8 '13 at 11:52
Good your problem is solved, but Hash Sum mismatch isn't a dependency issue. It clearly indicates that the package file libsaevt3_1.1.4-4_amd64.deb is corrupt or tampered with from your download source. Choose another mirror and redo the steps you already did. (this is for possible future visitors mostly) –  gertvdijk Jan 8 '13 at 23:14
