rpimonitor install fails

Running "sudo armbianmonitor -r" fails with this output:

Installing RPi-Monitor. This can take up to 5 minutes. Be patient pleaseE: Unable to locate package rpimonitor
/usr/bin/armbianmonitor: line 694: /usr/share/rpimonitor/scripts/updatePackagesStatus.pl: No such file or directory

Now patching RPi-Monitor to deal correctly with H3

Now you're able to enjoy RPi-Monitor at


It isn't possible to access RPi-Monitor on 

The folder /usr/share/rpimonitor does not exist.


This is on a Nano PI Neo Air board with freshly installed "buster". (would have included armbianmonitor -u output but that gives this error since yesterday "(52) Empty reply from server")


Any idea or fix to the RPi-Monitor install issue?

The script is simply using apt to install this package, but it can't be found. What is the output of

apt list | grep rpimonitor

Strange. Looks like your repository doesn't have the package. I only have Armbian Bionic available to test at the moment, and rpimonitor is in the bionic repo. I see this when I run the same command:

rpimonitor/bionic,bionic 2.12-r0 all

Have you run apt update and apt upgrade on this system yet? If not, try that.

Yes, apt update and apt ugrade is all I literally have done before trying to install rpimonitor. 


However now that I understand that it only installs the package from apt then I will try follow this to add a repository with rpimonitor: 




Thank you for your help!

Ok, I got it working using these commands

sudo wget http://goo.gl/vewCLL -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rpimonitor.list
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 2C0D3C0F
sudo apt-get update
sudo armbianmonitor -r

Thanks again, rpimonitor is a great tool so I am happy to have it working!
