Big user of Emby here, but about 2 months ago I've came across a problem that really screwed me over. I installed Emby via the third party repository (now you get Emby with a .deb file), and after a failed Emby upgrade, Emby's repository messed with my dependencies, deleting core system packages in the process. My system was a Debian server on version 9.1.

 

Luckily I had backups, so I reinstalled, but I did not install Emby because I was scared of losing my dependencies again. Now I'm Emby-less. So devs, can you please consider getting Emby into the official repositories for major distributions? This will make installing Emby a lot less of a hassle and ensure a more stable system. Thank you.

Hi, welcome. Can you explain your issue in more detail? The new Deb packages are standalone and don't have any dependencies.

Hey Luke, so the new .deb file doesn't add any third party repository? I used Emby when you had to add the Emby repo to /etc/apt/sources.d/, which caused problems when upgrading between versions. There was one time in particular where upgrading Emby on Debian would fail which wouldn't allow me to update any of the other packages on my system.

 

I might just give the .deb file a try. Thanks!
