Failed to download

  • Hi,

    I tried to update my package using wireless internet.

    I already check wireless connection.

    But, I cannot download and update packages using opkg command.

    yocto:/# sudo opkg update 
    wget: bad address ''
    Downloading file:///home/root/voxl-suite-ipk/Packages.gz.
    Updated source 'local'.
    Collected errors:
     * opkg_download_backend: Failed to download, wget returned 1.

    I visited website as ""
    as you can see this picture, I found this site is not secure in firefox.

    Q1) Is this ok to download package even though the site is not secure?

    Hi @shlee853 ,

    I didn’t setup SSL certificates for the package repo to simplify delivery on target, but this is the valid URL and is safe to proceed!
