After deploying a robot to Linux systems including Ubuntu 16 or SUSE12SP2, you may be unable to distribute probes to the robot. Attempting to distribute robot_update results in a "no sections found which can be installed" error.
This is caused by a defect in robot 7.91.
1. download the new version of nimldr792.tar.Z and install_LINUX_23_64.zip from this article. (This package installs robot 7.92GA.)
2. On the Linux box enter these commands to kill and remove the current robot:
rm -rf /opt/nimsoft/
3. use the new nimldr and install_LINUX_23_64.zip to reinstall the robot. When nimldr asks "Do we have a copy of the installation file locally?" say yes, and provide the path to this install_LINUX_23_64.zip file.
This will install the robot correctly and you will now be able to upgrade it and/or deploy probes successfully.
This issue will be resolved with the next GA robot installer release which will be released with UIM 9.0.
