Mint update broken Daryna Xfce

Postby kenetics on Sat Apr 05, 2008 3:31 pm

I get a broken icon for Mint Update. It says "Could not refresh the list of packages".
I have up dated my sources.list, Mint Config, and Mint Desktop. but i still can't update. Is there any other thing to update or check?

Thanks

Nice to hear from you - but not this way :)
It could be your sources.list or that you don't get internet connection for mintUpdate
Can you use apt? apt(-get) update
Perhaps

I'm having the same problem. The mint update-Xfce stopped working this weekend on both my laptop and desktop computers.

Hey guys, I just installed the Daryna Xfce CE beta 008 over the weekend, and I had the same problem. I remembered that merlwiz79 posted an updated sources file a little over a week ago, so I went and took that and updated my sources.list file. However, MintUpdate still had a problems. So I went into a terminal and ran the
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
command, and got:
Since this showed me what repository MintUpdate couldn't fetch, I commented out the Exaile repository in my sources.list file. After that, sudo apt-get update worked fine, and MintUpdate returned no errors, and was able to update everything else.

Now, since I still wanted to have the latest version of Exaile, I went to their website to find a download. While there, I found a Gutsy repository.
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/exaile-devel/ubuntu gutsy main
I replaced the old repository in my sources.list file with this one, and everything worked fine. However, MintUpdate didn't see an update, so I was a little puzzled (Exaile's current version is 0.2.13, and the version on my system was 0.2.11). So I went into Synaptic, and looked under the upgradeable section, and sure enough, it was telling me I could upgrade to Exaile 0.2.13. The update went fine, and I got the newest version. I'm not sure why it didn't show up in MintUpdate though.

Anyway, hope this helps you guys out! :D

*edit: I incorrectly stated that I downloaded beta 28. I changed it to beta 008, which was actually what I installed. I got the number mixed up with the Fluxbox CE beta that I also recently installed on an old laptop of mine.

Sorry, I forgot to post the link to merlwiz79's updated sources.list. It is in this post here: http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=60169#p60169 Follow his instructions for updating your sources.list file.

Thanks Eagle and Husse for your replies.

Eagle, commenting out exaile in the sources.list did it! I am now able to do the Mint Update. :D

For some reason exaile and wicd repos have been messed up.
Sometimes they work and sometimes not.
Just comment them out or disable then in Synaptic, when you have problems.
Also I would think mintUpdate could ignore this, but it doesn't. :?

Hi

Well my young brother Rodolfo ask me to install Mint XFCE CE because he was
sitting by my side and saw XFCE Desktop Environment screenshots and loved that
mouse logo.

a- I didn't installed NVidia driver after finishing installation
Later i updated Envy (missing dependency) and installed the driver


b- I disable " Madtux" repository - Exaile from sources.list

c- MintUpdate didn't work
I replaced it by updating it to version 1.7 (terminal)
Through Synaptic i installed it and remove XFCE Mintupate
Now i have Gnome Mintupdate working good

170 packages were updated - 2 of them were held back

Everthing's under control till now.

d- It's a pity that mozilla firefox browser was not updated - v.2.06[/b]
I wiil try the new version, installing firefox manually without no hurry - Let's see

Mozilla thunderbird is the newest one


Mint Xfce CE is a complete SO though it do not run light as it might run
comparing with Gnome and Kde Ce. But the apps and tools offered
are a quality guarantee for accept it as it was developed


Alright
Roberto

The xfce is a Community Edition developed an maintained by Merwiz who has problems both computerwise and otherwise so it's not moving as fast as the Main and KDE editions

A- Those are removed to let Envy Fit on the Live CD.

B- I have a new sources.list to fix this below.

C- mintupdate-gnome and mintupdate-xfce are the same accept the default icons used.

D- Firefox is up to 2.0.0.13 Clem changed the repository after the beta was released.
To get the latest mint updates use the new soureces.list one found here:
http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopi ... 169#p60169
more updates are here:
http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopi ... 378#p60378

Glad you like the XFCE CE version and sorry for any inconveniences.
