Yesterday I’ve received an email from @torproject.org. The sender requests me to update obfs4proxy at version 0.0.14. Is this a trustworthy request? And if so, what exactly are the steps I have to do in order to proceed the update?
Yes, update is needed.
Such request is also duplicated here on forum:
It depends on your OS. You need to replace old binary with new binary.
Sadly, I can’t say how to do this exactly.
Maybe other people will help.
If you use the Docker image it should work like this:
docker exec -it -u root CONTAINERNAME /bin/bash
In the container run
apt update && apt upgrade
After that the command
sudo apt -t bullseye-backports install obfs4proxy
made the trick. Now is 0.0.14 running.
I got two errors:
E: Sperrdatei /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend konnte nicht geöffnet werden. - open (13: Keine Berechtigung) E: Erlangen der Sperre für die Dpkg-Oberfläche (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend) nicht möglich; sind Sie root?
tells it remains on 0.0.13
What do I have to do?
If what I have written does not work
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
Does this apply to a Fedora bridge?
I can’t reply to the other thread (the one linked above) but the Ubuntu .deb from meskio worked for 2 of my 4 servers.
Of the two remaining servers:
1 is Ubuntu 20.04.5 (focal)
1 is Jammy but ARM instead of AMD
what can be done about these?
EDIT: I tried the .debs from the Debian repository on the two servers mentioned above and surprisingly they apparently worked okay
so now I have two servers (the Focal server and the ARM Jammy server) reporting “0.0.14-1~bpo11”, from the Debian repository, and two servers (both normal Jammy) reporting “0.0.14-1”, from mesiko’s link, and I’m not sure what the difference is. Maybe I should put the other two on the “0.0.14-1~bpo11” as well?
