Package armbian-config is not available

Go to solution Solved by Igor,

Recommended Posts



I installed a fresh `Armbian_23.02.2_Nanopim4v2_bullseye_current_5.15.93_minimal.img.xz` for the Nanopi M4v2. But when I try to install `armbian-config' after an `apt update`, I got following error:

root@nanopim4v2:~# apt install armbian-config
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Package armbian-config is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'armbian-config' has no installation candidate


also checked the apt-cache:

apt-cache showpkg armbian-config
Package: armbian-config

Also tried the `3rd party Debian based distributions`from https://github.com/armbian/config, but got the same error.


There is also a second unsolved thread:

I stay now with the non-minimal, but is there a solution for future using of the minimal with armbian-config?

Thanks and greeting!

Or install attached with

dpkg -i armbian*.deb

this worked on a fresh installed armbian:

apt update && apt upgrade -y
wget -O armbian-config.deb 'https://forum.armbian.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=12473&key=a65459c80c08c1043133549c7b2b7b01'
apt --fix-broken install
dpkg -i armbian-config.deb

Thanks @Igor!

Note: I am on Armbian_23.02.2_Nanopim4v2_bullseye_current_5.15.93_minimal. And not on Armbian_community_24.5.0-trunk.667_Nanopim4v2_bookworm_current_6.6.31_minimal. I am using it for OpenMediaVault!

Ok, I have to say that.


Today I tested something and used a new fresh installed SD-card Armbian_23.02.2_Nanopim4v2_bullseye_current_5.15.93_minimal (image from above). And armbian-config was able to install over apt

apt update && apt upgrade -y
apt install armbian-config
