Fresh install, update fails

Postby jonotime on Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:17 am

I just did a fresh install of debian edition. When I do the software updates it says packages are broken. So I quit that. If I do "sudo apt-get update"

I get a bunch of errors about not finding the server, similar to these:

I am on a thinkpad and online via ethernet. I am able to ping the servers and visit them in a browser. But when I visit one of the files in question, it does not exist: ... ion-en.bz2

I have disabled all the extra repos and am only doing to basics.

Go to it yourself and you will see it is not found. I cant tell if this is a problem on my end (because it is looking for updates in the wrong place) or if there are problems with the server it is hitting. I tried alternate servers as well.

Do Just level one updates, then just level two updates and then just level three.

That worked for me to start with.
