Hi
Have been reading through and have also followed instructions as above. Now I get the following message when using Update Manager
******************
Release file expired, ignoring http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/dist ... ng/Release (invalid since 44d 16h 45min 37s)
*****************
Any ideas why I'm getting this error message?

Thanks
Andrew

Discussed earlier in the thread -> viewtopic.php?f=185&t=82346&start=40#p479708
The solution given was:
In terminal,
Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/80mintupdate-debian

and put this line in there
Code: Select all
Acquire::Check-Valid-Until "false";

save, and the error should be gone

Downloading packages is extremely slow (10-20kb/s), will this change in near future?

Here download speeds are beyond pathetic as well. If I'm not mistaken there will be local mirrors of the Incoming and Latest repositories in due time, which should improve things. No idea how long it will take to get them set up, though. I haven't seen any announcement about them yet.

Until local mirrors are available everywhere, it would be nice if you could use the local mirror of Debian's own Testing repo for the actual downloading of packages. The one here can do at least 1Mb/s. There is a way to do that, but this involves downloading newly released packages to a kind of (limited) local repository mirror on your own machine, using a couple of shell scripts I've written. You could even do the downloading on a daily basis, without interfering with your Incoming/Latest setup.

For my own system, the ultimate test for this will be the next update pack. If anyone else is interested, I suppose I could write a HowTo...

@grizzler I'm in no hurry, they will make it working when they will be able to, I just wanted to know if it was me or them.

I just made a 'fresh install' of the newest LMDE-Xfce 2011.09 (x64) on my laptop, from the .iso I downloaded via Torrent, last night.

I followed the suggestions mentioned in the 1st post of this thread ... everything worked without a problem.

(Changed the default repros to mint-debian 'latest' and fixed the gstreamer package)

I was using an upgraded LMDE from 2010.10
LMDE-Xfce 2011.09 > looks good and everything works. Does everything I ask and expect; of both LM and Debian.

Of course, I added the Fluxbox WM over Xfce . . . :P

There has been a lot of questions concerning errors with the gstreamer packages. Something like

Code: Select all
Errors were encountered while processing:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)



In that case, copy the package name, example, /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb
Issue this command

Code: Select all
 sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb


Two questions: 1> does one try to fix this before running update... if update failed previously on account of "something like" that?
2> I get a seemingly related error message, which apparently interrupted the update:

Code: Select all
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstxvid.so', which is also in package gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad 0.10.22-0.1


somewhere I saw this posted as a solution:
sudo apt-get remove gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad << is that it or do I run the suggested command above?, i.e.,
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_amd64.deb << and if so, is that before or during (in response to) the error during updat?

Head exploding: I have APT sources correct. I run into this:

Code: Select all
An Error Occured
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad_0.10.22-3_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstxvid.so', which is also in package gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad 0.10.22-0.1


So saw in Update notes thing prior to running update, something about gstreamer, where it said to remove. So I open terminal and try to do so but get another weird error:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  mint-meta-codecs
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad
The following packages will be upgraded:
  mint-meta-codecs
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 369 not upgraded.
E: Could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock directory /var/cache/apt/archives/


Not sure what this meant, and hoping that it was, nevertheless removed, I ran update again but then got same message as first above. Obviously I am stupid and am doing something wrong.

probably you issued that command in terminal with mintupdate open (to check the information). you can't have two instances of apt running at one time, hence the error.

Thank you zerozero, hard to know logically some stuff in advance. APT sources correct and whatever with gstreamer was removed once ran command without Update Manager open ;/ ...... Update competed successfully

Sorry if this is a duplicate post but I've looked through and can't find an answer to the error message I currently get when using the update manager.

***************************
W: GPG error: http://debian.linuxmint.com testing Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 07DC563D1F41B907 Christian Marillat <marillat@debian.org>
***************************
my sources list is as follows;

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

which I believe is as it should be?

Questions:
1. Is there a problem I need to address?
2. If so, how do I go about sorting the problem?

Hats off to you guys!! Problem solved. Not sure what I've just done really, but I can follow instructions and no more error message. :D

In addition to which I found a link regarding updating pulseaudio which I also followed and now my internal mic works so skype is now functioning!

@proxima_centauri a big thank you for your help.
With your sticky of the Update Pack Info I was able to do what needed to be done and change the repo's to the correct
locations and finally have my updates coming through without Update Manager screaming at me

:D :D :D

I think I'm gonna try LMDE once more today. Do I still have to change the Repositories?

Hello
I do not know whether I understand?
Only 'update packs' come. No other traditional updates.It was not update more than one month, then this is normal right? When it comes the fourth update pack?

Yes, Update-Packs are released to Mint-Debian 'latest' - monthly.

The LMDE 'Incoming' repros receive updates on a more timely manner, as these are closer to a direct Debian 'testing'.

The next Update-Pack is waiting for Gnome-3.2 to be released into 'testing' ... then it will be ported to LMDE.

Update-Pack-4 should be released - soon, thereafter.

I really think this should be changed in the documentation to "frequently....when ready" or some other such verbiage as it has clearly caused some confusion to those of us new to LMDE and only tracking the standard LMDE repositories. This would also take the pressure off the team, and allow flexibility to do update packs more frequently as well as less frequently than the draconian "monthly." When 11/1 hit, and I was expecting the updates, I thought something was wrong with the update manager, package manager, sources.list, or even my DNS server before I found the reason for the delay of UP4 buried in forum posts.

Alternatively, if the "monthly" terminology is kept, there should be an updated sticky or forum blog post that outlines delay and rescheduled update pack--but I think changing the terminology would be better.

Even if the update packs were only semi-monthly or quarterly (with critical security updates in between) this would still represent a major improvement in the distro world--a happy medium between debian-stable and debian-testing, all in a rolling release model.
