Apt Update check mkp - agent plugin doesn't seem to get detected

Hi all,

successfully ran mkp install onto the monitoring hosts for this plugin
copied the agent plugin file to the monitored node under /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/plugins/

however, we’re stuck after that – host discovery doesn’t pick up the new plugin or service.

is the following forum post relevant?

I tried running the contents through translation,but it didn’t seem to provide any clues specific to this plugin.

For apt check no extra mkp is needed. There exists already a script “mk_apt” inside the normal CheckMK agent plugins. You only need to deploy these and that’s it.

check if the plugin is available in the plugin directory
check if perhaps a rule is blocking the use for this host.

Local and remote checking the output of the agent will help you.
