Linux-mint repos problem using LMDE

Postby roger64 on Wed Jun 01, 2011 6:20 am

Hi. I have been using LMDE for some months without problem.

Yesterday, Synaptic could not process any update.

It informed me that:

Impossible de récupérer http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/debian/Release Impossible de trouver l'entrée « universe/binary-i386/Packages » attendue dans le fichier « Release » :  ligne non valable dans sources.list ou fichier corrompu
Le téléchargement de quelques fichiers d'index a échoué, ils ont été ignorés, ou les anciens ont été utilisés à la place.


My sources.list looks like this:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import romeo backport universe
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free


I commented the linuxmint repos while waiting what to do exactly.

Any tip welcome.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The problem is with this line
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import romeo backport universe

Try taking out "universe"
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import romeo backport

Thanks. I'll will take out the repository universe.

But there must be a reason why it went wrong?

Am I the only one?
