Updates failing all day today

Postby Ubulindy on Fri May 23, 2014 8:47 pm

Nothing has changed. Updates have been failing all day today. Big red X. I even switched them to see if that could be the issue. Did not help. Here is my sources.list.d:

deb http://mirrors-usa.go-parts.com/linuxmint debian main upstream import

deb http://debian.lth.se/lmde/latest/ testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.lth.se/lmde/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.lth.se/lmde/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

deb http://extra.linuxmint.com debian main

UPDATE: A friend of mine just came over with her laptop, who also has LMDE on her laptop, and her updates are also failing.

Here is the output. Have a friend here still, and her repo/updates are failing as well. She also has LMDE. I'd also like to add, that when I posted earlier, this forum and the linux mint blog was VERY slow to load as well. A new regular Mint just came out didnt it? Is the server bogged down? Something? Makes no sense.

you're using packages.linuxmint.com and debian.linuxmint.com which sometimes die due to the high traffic. you can use the mirrors to upgrade your system.

Thanks for the reply by the way :) I tried that, they fail as well. Funny thing is. My friend just tried to install teamviewer 9 which required 3 additional packages. I opened up her terminal box just to watch in gdebi, for the 3 packages it tried to connect to linuxmint, and they also failed, which in turn made the install fail of course. I gave it a go on my machine, same thing. Failed when trying to connect to linuxmint.

gdebi didn't work on LMDE. you only said 'it didn't work' without providing log files, command result, or any usefull information. I'm afraid I can do nothing without further information.

I use gdebi all the time :D Matter of fact gdebi is what installs all my packages if Im not in cli or synaptic.
My friend and I sat here and went through all the mirrors one by one until we found the 2 that work. Packages once again install as well. Update manager has no errors. Thank you for your help. ;)

Sure !

Install MintSources and mint-mirrors.
Then in a terminal type
Code: Select all
mintsources

Select the best mirror and you're done :wink:
