Unable to connect to repositories

Postby malkowkiorg on Thu May 16, 2013 8:52 am

Hello Guys,
I am new in Linux Mint.
I am trying to solve an issue updating the old version I have see below:
System: Host mpp-vm-lmde Kernel 3.2.0-4-486 i686 (32 bit) Distro Linux Mint Debian Edition
Repos: Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list
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
I got the following errors when trying this:
mppdev@mpp-vm-lmde ~/mpp> sudo apt-get update
[sudo] password for mppdev:
Err http://packages.linuxmint.com debian InRelease

Err http://packages.linuxmint.com debian Release.gpg

When trying this:
mppdev@mpp-vm-lmde ~> host packages.linuxmint.com
packages.linuxmint.com has address 204.45.82.194

I have no proxy issue but I cannot get the data from linux mint.
How can I solve the issue?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I assume your internet is working as it should and pinging the servers manually gets a normal response?
