Hi - Trying havana on Ubuntu 12:04 and getting the following error msg from apt-get: root@sandbox1:~# apt-get install nova-conductor Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package nova-conductor root@sandbox1:~#

This package is required according to: http://docs.openstack.org/havana/install-guide/install/apt/content/nova-controller.html

Not sure where to find this software.

Did you install the Havana apt repo as described earlier in the guide?

Thank you for your reply.

I had an issue with installing cloud-archive:havana that I could not figure out. I tried: 1- apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade 2- root@sandbox1:~# apt-get install python-software-properties Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done python-software-properties is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 3- root@sandbox1:~# add-apt-repository cloud-archive:havana Error: 'cloud-archive:havana' invalid root@sandbox1:~#

I added the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/uca-havana.list:

deb http://ubuntu-cloud.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise-updates/havana main deb http://ubuntu-cloud.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu precise-proposed/havana main

but did not solve the add-apt-repository problem.

Any idea?

If you created a file under /etc/apt/sources.list.d, then you no longer need to run the apt-add-repository command. Just do "apt-get upgrade" and possibly "apt-get install ubuntu-cloud-keyring".
