I downloaded the and unzipped it to run ./bin/karaf and am getting some error while installing some features.

opendaylight-user@root>feature:install odl-ovsdb-openstack odl-ovsdb-northbound odl-restconf odl-mdsal-apidocs odl-adsal-all odl-adsal-northbound odl-dlux-core Error executing command: No feature named 'transaction' with version '0.0.0' available

While debugging :

opendaylight-user@root>feature:info odl-adsal-clustering
Feature odl-adsal-clustering 0.5.1-Helium
  OpenDaylight :: AD-SAL :: Clustering
Feature has no configuration
Feature has no configuration files
Feature depends on:
  transaction 0.0.0
  odl-base-felix-dm 0.0.0
  odl-base-eclipselink-persistence 0.0.0
  odl-adsal-core 0.8.1-Helium
Feature contains followed bundles:
Feature has no conditionals.

which means adsal is depending on transaction feature.

Ubuntu version: 14.04 Java version: 1.7

I had this worst work around: performed "mvn clean install" to controller source code. The issue was gone for pre-built package.

I need a better solution. Any idea how to resolve this issue?

Thanks, Chandralekha

Hi Chandralekha, I am running into the same issue. Can you explain your workaround? I do not have ODL source on this machine. I just have the distribution-karaf-0.2.0-Helium downloaded. This is a Fedora 20 machine. What can I do to workaround this issue? Thanks

This is likely a proxy issue or some sort of corrupted local maven repository. Try the following steps.

Maven Settings

Check that maven is installed and your settings.xml file for maven at /usr/share/maven/conf/settings.xml is configured correctly (double check proxy settings, nexus repository settings etc). Edit etc files for karaf to point to shared maven config:

cd /home/<user>/distribution-karaf-<version>-<release>/etc

Edit org.ops4j.pax.url.mvn.cfg and add



Add proxy setting below only if you are using a proxy


Delete Local Maven Repository and Karaf Data contents

Remove the repository folder in your .m2 directory:

rm -rf ~/.m2/repository

Remove the data folder content:

rm -rf <karaf-distro>/data/*

Karaf uses maven to download dependencies at run-time, if there are conflicts in the maven repository or a proxy is blocking maven from downloading dependencies you will experience this issue.

Perform mvn clean install for both controller source code and integration code. This resolved the issues. I have tried this in several PCs and this solution works well. Reported bug

I ran into this issue today using a pre-built binary downloaded from the site and while I can certainly implement this fix with a node that is connected to the internet, what is the method to correct this when im in a production environment and there is no access to public repos? Any way to work around that?

Cheers, Daniel
