Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Get rid of "universe", as there is no universe repository for Linux Mint, so that it looks like this:

Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import


To edit your sources.list file:
Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list


Indeed, it's the little things that matter, especially when the user goes and unintentionally breaks stuff. The "universe" entry is not there by default, nor should it be there, so either you messed up your sources.list yourself and you had a 3rd party tool mess it up for you. *shrug*

As a suggestion, you will probably get faster updates/downloads if you set your country code.

If you are in the USA:
Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free


Notice where to insert the country code in the above example.
Debian 7 with GNOME 64-bit

You can do that yourself, by editing the title.
