Default Git hangs on cloning

I've upgraded my system from Devuan 2 to Devuan 4 and now git hangs on cloning:
Code:
# GIT_TRACE=1 GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 git clone --verbose https://github.com/punesemu/puNES
Code:
02:04:36.418257 git.c:444               trace: built-in: git clone --verbose https://github.com/punesemu/puNES

Any tips where should i look, what should i check?
(The problem is not with the repository: it hangs on all repositories. Edit: Also, curl works, so it's not an issue of curl.)

How exactly did you do that? Did you upgrade to version 3 before going to v4? That is the recommended approach.

I've just loaded up the Devuan chimaera live ISO image and that command works just fine there so perhaps something went wrong with your attempted upgrade.

Is git the chimaera version?
Code:
apt policy git
Your debug output stops just before the SSL certificate verification stage so also check
Code:
apt policy ca-certificates
date # is the system clock correct?
Although I would expect an error message about the certificate failing if there was a problem there. How long did you wait?

Does the repository clone successfully if you use http instead of https?

Do you have a firewall running? If so does disabling it help?

Are you using a proxy? If so have you configured git to work with that?

Finally, is there a reason why you've posted here rather than the Devuan forums? You might get a better response there.

Minutes. But it stuck at that particular line and never moved. It wasn't slow, it stucked.

Nope, since it redirects me to HTTPS anyway. I only could try this, if there would be a git repository which still transmits via HTTP.

No firewall, no proxy. Before the upgrade, it did work and i changed nothing beside upgrading the system.

I do not yet have an account there (unless i forgot that i registered...) and here i get better answers than on Linux forums; most problems i shared here, were solved here.

Yes, these boards are very good :-)

What were the exact commands you used for the upgrades?

The recommendation is to change /etc/apt/sources.list and then
Code:
# apt update
# apt upgrade
# apt full-upgrade
There can be problems if aptitude is used because it's advanced dependency resolution algorithms can get confused.

Based on this: https://www.devuan.org/os/documentat...de-to-chimaera
The commands were these:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
I never use aptitude.

Clearly the Devuan developers haven't read the respective Debian upgrade guides

But yes, those commands should be roughly equivalent, I think.

Were there any problems during the upgrades? Do you have any foreign sources? Does your internet connection work fine in all other respects?

In case it isn't obvious, I'm running out of ideas here :-(

Tons of problems. But none regarding git.
Well, maybe with one exception. I do not remember the reason, but at one point in the past, i had pinned the packages 'libcurl3-gnutls' and 'libcurl4-gnutls-dev'. This caused apt to remove git, instead of upgrading it. But after i've removed the pinning, git simply installed.
I tried to reinstall those packages, to no avail. Also i tried to remove and purge git and then reinstall it, but nothing has changed.

Some. (Trinity Desktop, LLVM, Mono.) But none of them has to do anything with git. They are the same before and git worked before.

Absolutely. No other errors.

Let's see what the damage is:
Code:
aptitude search '?narrow(?installed, !?origin(Devuan))'
A badly configured foreign repository can pull in non-standard core libraries that will disrupt the system in subtle and non-obvious ways.

As I said the chimaera live ISO can clone that git repository just fine so this problem is not inherent to that release.

Unfortunately it looks like you've used the Refracta installer, which uses .debs to install the core packages — this makes finding "foreign" packages much more difficult.

As such my only recommendation here is to reinstall and don't add foreign repositories next time. The Devuan developers explicitly warn against doing so and such a setup is unsupported, both by them and by me. Sorry.

I used what??? What is "Refracta installer"? I've never heard about it...

But that is impossible. My desktop environment is TDE which is not in the Devuan repositories, i have to add it. LLVM too, i am a programmer, i need that. As for Mono, i could omit that, i don't even remember what needed it, but i doubt that is the cause as it was installed before and git worked. But this applies to TDE and LLVM repos too.

It is the installer available from the live ISO images.

I might be wrong though because you've upgraded the system through 2 releases so any .debs should have been updated from the repositories. If that is the case then your system has a huge number of non-Devuan core packages. No wonder it's broken. In my experience most "foreign" repositories are poorly configured and supply software for which the packaging is of a very low standard indeed.

You can try removing all of the stuff installed from those repositories to see if that fixes git. Given that git works fine in the "pure" live environment I would expect that to be the case. Good luck!

I did not use any kind of special installer, i used apt-get and i upgraded the system, i did not use any ISO images.

Also TDE, LLVM and Mono has zero packages that conflicts with Devuan core packages; TDE is a desktop environment, it installs TQt and a bunch of desktop applications, LLVM only gives CLang and Mono is just a bunch of dotnet packages. No core packages. They were installed when i still was using Devuan 2, how could they broke git now?

I don't know. I'm out. Hopefully somebody else will be able to offer better assistance. Some Devuan developers do actually post regularly over at the Devuan forums and I'm sure they know better than me.

Okay, i'll head unto the Devuan Galaxy. Wish me luck, i'll be back with the solution. (Granted, IF there will be a solution...)

And thanks for helping.

Git seems to be working with SSH. Although it would be good, to use it without authentication...

Solved it: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=5509#p40818

TL;DR: I had a backported librtmp1 way back in Debian 8 which never got upgraded, because of being later than the versions of Devuan 2 and 3 delivered. Devuan 4 actually had a newer one, but because a different - higher - ASCII character separated the equivalent version number from the date, APT thought it, the backportad one is the higher. So, the solution was to downgrade librtmp1 from the older to the newer, from 2.4~20150315.gita107cef9b-dmo1+deb8u2 to 2.4+20151223.gitfa8646d.1-2+b2.

tl;dr: that package was in the "damage.log" and I was right

You were right about the package being in "damage.log", but you were definitely wrong about the root of the problem coming from TDE, LLVM or Mono...
And also, "damage.log" contained 1188 packages, including tons of programs i use. Removing them systematically was simply not a viable option.
