I’m running XWiki on a tiny Ubunto 21.04 pc. With the release of XWiki 13.5, I’ve got a failure in the automatic APT updates. I’ve searched the internet trying to resolve the issue, but no success. It seems a problem with the way XWiki is packaged for installation no longer being compatible with the new version of Ubuntu DEB - APT.
Below is the log I’m getting when trying to update.
Thanks for the help.
