While running a build of the core-image-sato using the

commits and the meta-cedartrail bsp, I notices some errors fly by
and thought I'd see if anyone knows the reason. The build is just
to test the bsp with no changes. Basically, doing the
Appendix A of
the Development manual substituting cedartrail for crownbay.
snippet of the console log below:
NOTE: package icon-naming-utils-native-0.8.7-r3: task do_unpack:
ERROR: Function 'Unpack failure for URL:

I don't know the reason, but I did get the same error when
trying to build yocto
per the getting started page, changing local.conf to create qemuarm

I would be interested in knowing the reason too.
There has been a bug filed against this issue, it seems that the
tarballs have moved or are unavailable from that location for some
reason. You are getting a download page, and I believe that the
failure should occur earlier with a checksum mismatch, but is not.

You can fetch this file from our mirror at:


Sorry for the dumb question, but how do I download the file and fool
bitbake into not trying to download it from the invalid site? Or do
I need to change a file somewhere to specific our mirror URL
cd into DL_DIR
wget the<tar>
then touch<tar>.done

You can add

something like
to the concerned recipe.
I went back and had a number of issues so I just deleted the current ~/poky/build directory and restarted the process including editing the conf/local.conf, etc. The only change I made to the recipes was to put in the reference to the Yocto mirror for icon-naming-utils. I got a fair way down into the build(2358 of 4426) before I got a new error. The step is related to do_package_write_rpm the log is below:
