Ubuntu Upgrades 16.04 LTS -> 18.04.1 LTS does not update the pre-installed ID-card software.

During the upgrade, Ubuntu informs that third-party software is not upgraded.

The content of  /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ria-repository.list is changed as follows:
# deb https://installer.id.ee/media/ubuntu/ bionic main # disabled on upgrade to bionic


-Because files compiled for Ubuntu 16.04 will not run on Open-EID 18.04, the DigiDoc4 will not start.

-Error in the command line:
qdigidoc4: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libdigidocpp.so.1: undefined symbol:

-Authentication works in Chrome.

-Authentication in Firefox does not work. After the certificate selection, Secure Connection Failed opens.

-Signing in Chrome or in Firefox does not work. After a PIN request, technical_error is displayed.

Solution 1

1. Re-open the Open-EID installation script.

2. Run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

The installation script updates the open-eid and opensc package, the second command is needed to update the rest of the packages.

Solution 2 (This option is suitable for the more experienced computer user.)

1. Remove the line comment from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ria-repository.list 

2. Run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade.
