Sudden problem updating from repositories

Postby aguador on Sat Oct 12, 2013 12:11 pm

Hello all,

I am not sure if this belongs here or even in the forums as it may be a technical difficulty. However for the last couple of days my Mint 13 updater has been generating errors like the following:

Imposible obtener http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/precise/Release.gpg Algo raro pasó al resolver «packages.medibuntu.org:http» (-5 - No existe ninguna dirección asociada al nombre)

Algunos archivos de índice fallaron al descargar. Se han ignorado, o se han utilizado unos antiguos en su lugar

(Translations: Impossible to get XXX - something strange happend in resolving YYY. Last line = Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored or old files have been used in their place.)

I am running Maya with MATE desktop on an i386 netbook, have had no problems in the year I have had the OS installed, and do not recall changing anything recently. Are others having the problem as well? Is there a problem with the respositories themselves? Or has something just gone haywire with my update manager?

Many thanks in advance.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Medibuntu is no longer maintained. You can ignore the message or delete it from software sources. There is a currently active thread on this topic. That resource is used for only 2 files, and is not used for Mint 14 and onward.

Edit: Correction - not used by all versions of Mint 14 and 15, some use it. How to remove:
