Command line client problem when adding library


I managed to install command line client to Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS and started it. But when trying to add library I get following error. What can be the problem, is it due to using https ? I tried client also on debian and got same error. Also tried other server using https.

$ seaf-cli sync -l "my_lib" -s "https://server:port" -d "folder" -u "user"
Enter password for user :

    repo_info = urlopen(url, headers=headers)

    raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 404: NOT FOUND

When giving wrong password the last line of the error is
“urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 400: BAD REQUEST”

With wrong server address the error is
“urllib2.URLError: urlopen error [Errno 111] Connection refused”

You say that you are trying to “add” a library, but you are using the “sync” command.
Did you first create the library?
seaf-cli create -s seahub-server-url -n library-name -u username -p password -t description [-e library-password]

Thanks, your suggestion lead to fixing the problem. I didn’t realize the difference between library ID and name and was trying to put the name. After creating new library I got the ID, and with it I could download/sync. So far I only found one way to find the library ID is by listing libraries with cli-client.
