It looks like you have the beta version, brave-browser-beta-.list, in your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and you’re trying to install the release version. If you just want the release version then you can comment the line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-beta-.list to disable the beta version

Then edit your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-.list which should be in the directory also, and add your debian version, whatever it is (like ‘stretch’), before ‘main’

Example line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-.list:
deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stretch main

Then try updating

Hope it helps!

I’ve been meaning to update the install instructions. For Debian, you need to change all the UBUNTU_CODENAME stuff to a Debian keyword like “stable”.

Can you please give us the full instructions on how to install it on Debian please Tom?
Many thanks

On my Debian unstable machine, I followed the official Ubuntu instructions and only changed the following step:

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ $UBUNTU_CODENAME main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-${UBUNTU_CODENAME}.list

to this:

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ bionic main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-bionic.list

Then I also added the following in /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf:

kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1
