Pipeline with apt update started to fail

Matt Bielawski May 2, 2023

We started receiving the below error end of last week from the apt update step. Note our pipeline didn't change:

+ apt update
WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.
Ign:1 stretch InRelease
Ign:2 stretch/updates InRelease
Ign:3 stretch-updates InRelease
Err:4 stretch Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Err:5 stretch-updates Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Err:6 stretch/updates Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Reading package lists...
E: The repository ' stretch Release' does not have a Release file.
E: The repository ' stretch-updates Release' does not have a Release file.
E: The repository ' stretch/updates Release' does not have a Release file.


Our pipeline was running successfully prior to last week. Below is a snippet of our pipeline. Has anyone encountered this issue and resolved it?

- step:
image: maven:3.6.1
- maven
name: Build and Run Unit Tests
- cp settings.yaml $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR/src/main/resources/settings.yaml
- cp appSettings.yaml $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR/src/main/resources/appSettings.yaml
- cp settings.xml ~/.m2/settings.xml
- apt update
- apt install jq -y

Hi Erez, thank you for the suggestion. We are looking to take a similar action and are still reviewing what version of maven to update to

What we found is that is that Debian 9/stretch moved to
For a short term solution:
We will point apt to the archived version by adding the following line before the apt update line in our pipeline:
echo "deb stretch main" > /etc/apt/sources.list

We found this solution here:

For our Long term solution:
We will look for a newer version of the maven image that supports an updated version of apt
