Hello Oliver,

"temporary error" indicates some kind of network issue. Most of the
time, it means it cannot resolve the hostname of the mirror it's trying
to fetch from.

So could you verify that you have a network connection in general and
can connect to the mirrors specified in /etc/apk/repositories?

Kind regards, Kevin
