Tutorial - Setting up a Raspberry Pi 3 as an Access Point
about 9 months ago
I tried the same thing as you the Nov 2018 Raspbian Lite version and just like you wasn't able to get the tutorial to work.
However, the one linked in this tutorial March 2018 worked great after one small addition before you start run:
"sudo apt-get update"
otherwise you'll get the following error:
Err:1 http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian stretch/main armhf hostapd armhf 2:2.4-1+deb9u1
404 Not Found [IP: 126.96.36.199 80]
E: Failed to fetch http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/w/wpa/hostapd_2.4-1+deb9u1_armhf.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 188.8.131.52 80]
The apt-get update command downloads the package lists from the repositories and "updates" them to get information on the newest versions of packages and their dependencies.
I was also successful in using the March 2018 in headless mode. I dropped a blank "ssh" file in the boot partition and was able to run the complete tutorial without having to hook-up a keyboard and mouse. The Raspberry Pi 3 was hooked up over wired ethernet.
Hope this helps!
