I can report that I had the same problem and fixed it by building the mlat-client from github.

When in future any update/upgrade command is run, it will replace healthy mlat-client (which you have built yourself) by the defective mlat-client from RB24 repository.

To prevent this, put your mlat-client on hold by following command
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-mark hold  mlat-client

The responce to above command will be:

mlat-client set on hold..

Can this made undone? if so what's the command for this?

Thanks in advance

Yes, it can be undone by following command

sudo apt-mark unhold mlat-client

Responce:
Canceled hold on mlat-client.

Please note that I have been advised as follows that a new MLAT client is available which should fix the previous issue

Package mlat-client is updated in our repository using the latest published version from mutability (0.2.11), but ours is "1:0.2.13" just because we need to change version number to 'force' apt-get to understand that is a new version (the code is the same).
Should work for every new installation by now.

Note that the packages are updated only for the latest (current) version of raspbian OS (AKA Bullseye), not for older versions (buster). If we have A LOT of users running older OS's, we can create a package for that.....but my recommendation is to update the operating system.

Let me know if it is OK

The installation of the flight feeder works ok, there are still issues installing airband.

E: Unable to locate package rtl-airband-rb

Airband has nothing to do with ADSB mlat client totally seperate install, ask support to direct to Airband package

I expect most of the users including me are aware of this. Your advice to update to bullseye i do not understand, as the transition to Bullseye will break many of the users setup if they have airband included. Radarbox should update their website and include a working airband for Bullseye. Remember Bullseye is released more than 1 year ago......

It is not my advice it comes from the developer responsible for Linux, if you dont want to do it dont do it.   His advice is based on ADSB requirement not VHF

Regarding your request for Bullseye airband I suggest you contact Airnav with that request as I previously suggested
