hi i guys i am currently running a pi3 with raspbian Jessie , pixel and retropie i have tried both methods of adding the repo and still i am unable to download the raspbian package any tips help guidance or advice would be really appreciated trying my best to push the pi to its full potential openmw seams to be just the trick

first i tried
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openmw-data

witch just gave me
E: Unable to locate package openmw-data

after that it was
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian

gives me this
sudo add-apt-repository http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 167, in <module>
sp = SoftwareProperties(options=options)
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 105, in __init__
self.reload_sourceslist()
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 595, in reload_sourceslist
self.distro.get_sources(self.sourceslist)
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 89, in get_sources
(self.id, self.codename))
aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Raspbian/jessie




then i tried
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

and added
deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free

changing this (/etc/apt/sources.list)
deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
#deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

to this (/etc/apt/sources.list)
deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free
deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

then i tried
apt-get source openmw-data
AND
apt-get source openmw-data
Both returns this
E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list

i have openmw on my ubuntu laptop and it runs fine sow how can i get it onto my RPI3 any help would be greatly appreciated

Have a look here: https://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/p ... /o/openmw/

Looks like raspian's packages for openmw are broken. You should contact them to tell them to fix it or to remove the entry. Having broken packages is a headache for end users.

how would i get in touch with the folks in charge ? iv also seen users on older versions of pi and raspbian essentially create frankendebian and run those packages but im not overly interested in breaking the os id rather have it as part of the one system so i can have all the other rpg classics and a few other gems and performance testers (mario 64 is a good one)

You can always build from scratch. :)

Or post on their forums.
