Cannot install GitLab CE on Debian 7

The procedure described at:

is not working because registered repository hasn’t any package called “gitlab-ce”, and/or repository URL is wrong.

Note: Trying it on a i686 architecture.


I reply on this thread because it seems to be the same problem.

I would try to install a gitlab-ce on a debian 7 server (i hope i can upgrade one day … but only this version currently)

First : I found this procedure/script :

(after proxy config) it configure the repo sources, but an apt-get update can’t contact the URL (403)

Ign wheezy Release.gpg
Ign wheezy Release
Err wheezy/main Sources
The requested URL returned error: 403
Err wheezy/main amd64 Packages
The requested URL returned error: 403
Ign wheezy/main Translation-fr_FR
Ign wheezy/main Translation-fr
Ign wheezy/main Translation-en
W: Impossible de récupérer The requested URL returned error: 403

E: Le téléchargement de quelques fichiers d’index a échoué, ils ont été ignorés, ou les anciens ont été utilisés à la place.
(it’s a french OS)

I try to look manually the urls i got an error page like
that redirect to :

and other where i got a page not found.

Is it still possible to configure a repo on debian7 to install gitlab-ce ?

Second : i see a .deb download file,

but seems he install its own requisites like nginx,… Is it right, or can we install only gitlab-ce and have apt install the others like nginx,… from debian repo ?


I used the manual (and unmanaged then) .deb install …

i surely not use 32bit architectures now. Even on Debian7 i avoid install all 32bit depandancies since some years. I will not do only for a case where maybe a source repo is broken.

For me, or the documentation is obsolete or there is a need to repair the gitlab repo.

i’ll try on debian 8 or 9 next, but currently at work i have only deb7, then if I want to install now, i need to stay with current IT reco.
