Thank you for contacting us.
First, we understand you’re using an Intel IoT developer Tool and are running on Mac, are you referring to the Intel System Studio? If that’s the case, then yes, there’s a guide to the complete installation process and information on how to synchronize and update packages.
Take a look at https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/705853 for more information.
If you’re not using the Intel System Studio, then you shouldn’t see any issues while trying to update UPM. We update upm using the same command successfully. Please confirm you’re using ISS.
In regards to the default workspace question then no, I believe you should only specify a workspace folder on your first time running the Intel System Studio.
The guide to setup the Intel System Studio IoT Edition is https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-system-studio-iot-edition-guide-for-c
Let us know if this is what you were looking for.
thanks a lot for your answer.
Yes, I think the name was Intel Studio IoT. If you start it, it's called Eclipse.
I followed exactly the manual you advised. But it fails during the update. I think there's an issue with the image.
As I wrote before, there are also multiple possibilities to get a yocto image from the intel server. The one which was installed together with the Studio IoT is not working at all !!!
The one which boots is coming from the step by step manual for Galileo. But this can't be updated.
As the update also doesn't work manually by ssh to the Galileo, I think there's something wrong with the image or the package sources. The Galileo has internet connection. This can't be the cause...
I believe your error is because you haven’t updated UPM and MRAA on the terminal. First, we want to know which image you’re using. Please use https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-linux-step1 for steps on how to use the latest Galileo image.
Next step is updating UPM from the terminal using Putty, not inside ISS. Run the command:
echo "src mraa-upm http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.5/intelgalactic/opkg/i586" > /etc/opkg/mraa-upm.conf
opkg install mraa
opkg install upm.
Next, using the ISS, try once again to update UPM, using the command from the initial post. These were the steps we did to update UPM.
It’d also be helpful to confirm if you’re using the latest ISS version available. Once you’ve confirmed you’ve everything properly set try once again and let us know your results.
this worked, thank you !!!
May I suggest to update the image file on the intel server to prevent other people running into the same issue?
Thank you for letting us know you manage to get this working. We’ll make sure to pass your feedback to the right team. Don’t hesitate to contact us again if help is needed.
