I found this thread while trying to learn how to use my 1073 SBC. I'm not a CS major so I really need some baby steps here. I'm getting the exact same message as OP, but haven't been able to figure out how to solve it for myself. I have the 1073 connected to my computer via Ethernet, and a 1046 bridge input phidget connected to the SBC. I can open the Phidget control panel and see the PhidgetSBC listed, and can double click to open the interface on my browser. In the browser I can see the 8/8/8 interface kit and the 1046 bridge input listed on the Phidgets tab.
However, I'm following along with the getting started video and when I get to the part where I need to download the correct packages I get the message:
'Upgrading/Installing packages requires that the SBC have an active internet connection, which is not available. Please connect your SBC to the internet.'
What are some simple troubleshooting steps I can take? Are there any settings on my PC that I need to change in order to make this work? I have tried disabling the Windows firewall, but that hasn't made a difference. I've enabled SSH Server in the Phigets Network settings. I can see a MDNS Hostname and IP address in the control panel on my desktop, but I don't see an IP address listed in the Network status tab on my browser connected to the SBC.
Thank you for any help! I'm really facing a steep learning curve here
