Need help getting hipchat client installed on Linux - repo throwing 404's Edited



Trying to get hipchat client installed on a Linux system.  I followed the instructions on your download page but am receiving the following error from your repository.


Reading package lists... Done
W: The repository ' loki Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


Can someone please advise on where I can fetch the client package(s)?

Fixed this myself after realizing that the install instructions dyanmically try to assign the 'distro' value.  Since this host is elementaryOS and not ubuntu, it named itself 'loki'.  By manually setting 'yakkety' instead of 'loki', this is now functioning and the app has downloaded, installed, and is running.


Chris, you're the man! For anyone else needing it:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb yakkety main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/atlassian-hipchat4.list'
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hipchat4

The instructions on the website for Linux are still incorrect. The commented instructions above work.
