Today I wrote latest Raspbian image (Buster) to microSD card and installed rbfeeder.
All went ok and the feeder is working fine.

However when I tried to install mlat-client by following command, it failed:

Code: [Select]
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install mlat-client

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 mlat-client : Depends: python3 (< 3.6) but 3.7.3-1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


I solved this problem by building the mlat-client package from source code as follows:

Code: [Select]
## Installed required packages (dependencies and build tools)
sudo apt update -y
sudo apt-get install -y git curl build-essential debhelper python-dev python3-dev

## Downloaded source code
cd /home/pi/
git clone https://github.com/mutability/mlat-client.git

## Built mlat-client's installation package
cd /home/pi/mlat-client
sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc

## Above command took some time to build package
## After the package was built, installed it by following command
cd /home/pi/
sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_*.deb

I too have had the same problem however tried running the code as provided and now get the following error-

error: cannot access archive 'mlat-client_*.deb': no such file or directory.

Any ideas? thanks

Sorry, there was a mistake in the second last line.
It was wrongly written "cd /home/pi/mlat-client".
The correct command is "cd /home/pi/"

The last two commands should be like below. I have now corrected it in my original post also
Code: [Select]
cd /home/pi/
sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_*.deb

Thanks was able to get MLAT issue resolved for both my feeders. I had autostart_mlat set as true but that did not help, I had to put in the coordinates in the ini file for it to work.

That's correct, Pi's require the lat/lon to be set for MLAT
