Cannot upgrade YunoHost or install several apps after CouchDB installation failure | RESOLVED

Hi Everyone,

I apologize in advance for the multifaceted nature of this problem.

I tried installing CouchDB the other day, and it failed, with the following warnings / errors:

2021-07-09 21:23:26,504: ERROR - Unable to install couchdb: An error occurred inside the app installation script


2021-07-09 21:23:20,183: WARNING - gpg: key 379CE192D401AB61: public key "Bintray (by JFrog) <>" imported

2021-07-09 21:37:25,038: WARNING - E: The repository ' buster InRelease' is not signed.

Since this failure, several apps have failed to install at all, or have failed to install correctly, including Wekan, OnlyOffice, FramaForms, and one or two more that I have forgotten. In addition, I cannot upgrade YunoHost. The error message I receive when trying to upgrade is as follows:

Error: "500" Internal Server Error

Action: "PUT" /yunohost/api/update/all

Error message:
Unable to update the cache of APT (Debian's package manager). Here is a dump of the sources.list lines, which might help identify problematic lines:
sources.list:deb buster main contrib non-free sources.list:deb buster-updates main contrib non-free sources.list:deb buster/updates main contrib non-free sources.list.d/wekan.list:deb buster/mongodb-org/4.4 main sources.list.d/yunohost.list:deb buster stable sources.list.d/extra_php_version.list:deb buster main sources.list.d/grafana.list:deb stable main sources.list.d/couchdb.list:deb buster main

While processing the action the server said:
Fetching available upgrades for system packages...
E: Failed to fetch 403 Forbidden [IP: 443]
E: The repository ' buster InRelease' is not signed.

My YunoHost server:

Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version:
I have access to my server : Through SSH & through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

TLDR Description of my issue:

CouchDB install failed after failure to fetch binaries. Warning messages resulting from said failure now preventing installation of other apps and upgrade of YunoHost.

I’m not sure whether CouchDB is just a dependency for a ton of stuff, or if the install just messed something up. In any case, I don’t have the knowledge or skill necessary to update the CouchDB install script myself, so I would really appreciate any help or insight!

Fixed update error by removing /etc/apt/sources.list.d/couchdb.list from server - still unable to install couchDB

The YunoHost CouchDB package issue causing installation failure is resolved in the latest testing branch.
