GhostBSD 11.1 Octopkg renders errors

Post by datapioneer » Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:23 pm

I am running GhostBSD 11.1 with Mate desktop environment as a VM in Oracle Virtualbox. Everything has been working great until I decided to use Octopkg to install a package. When I opened Octopkg and authenticated to it, instead of synchronizing databases it returns "Command finished with errors". If I attempt to install any package, I get the same results.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Nevermind. I discovered the issue. I was entering the password for my user account rather than root and even though it didn't warn me that I was entering an incorrect password, it was entering a "Command ended with errors" message. I entered root's password and all is well.
