Migration of Package Repository URL location from AWS S3 to Cloudsmith

In February 2021 we started the transition from our DEB/RPM package reposistories hosted on AWS S3 towards a hosting on Cloudsmith, a specialized package hosting company.

For a temporary phase between September 2020 and May 2021 we also used the now discontinued service Bintray from JFrog. Debian/Ubuntu users that migrated already need to make another change to the repository URL as detailed in this guide.

Since then all our documentation pages and installation wizards references the Cloudsmith repository hosted at https://cloudsmith.io/~tideways/repos/

To update your infrastructure to receive packages from Cloudsmith instead of AWS S3 you need to make the following changes:

APT Packages

For Debian/Ubuntu packages installed via APT, update the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tideways.list and change the repository to:

deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/tideways.gpg] https://packages.tideways.com/apt-packages-main any-version main

Import the new GPG Key for [email protected]:

wget -qO - 'https://packages.tideways.com/key.gpg' | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/tideways.gpg > /dev/null

RPM Packages

For CentOS packages installed via YUM, update the file /etc/yum.repos.d/tideways.repo and change the repository location to:

name = Tideways
baseurl = https://packages.tideways.com/yum-packages-main

Import the new GPG key for [email protected]:

rpm --import https://packages.tideways.com/key.gpg
We are mirroring the packages from Cloudsmith to the old AWS S3 location, so no immediate changes are necessary on your end to recieve packages with the latest features and bugfixes.
