apt-get errors

Postby ChromeMukuro on Mon Nov 22, 2010 6:18 pm

i "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" on a regular basis, and this afternoon when i went to do my routine update i got the following errors:

I'm getting the same thing both with apt-get and Package Manager. I know clem made an announcement last week that the servers for the Mint home page (including the Mint repositories) and the blog were being changed. This may be a hold over from the change. The urls of the repos may have been changed and not updated in Synaptic yet. I've been ill for most of the last week so I have not been around much. I will check this out and post back when I know something.

thanks for the tip on that. i did see it, but my synaptic hadn't been affected since reading the article... i do my updates 2-3 times a day (there is something soothing in seeing the sources update then checking for package updates... i think the Linux has taken hold) and i ran my update this morning with no issues, so i was surprised.

This looks like a similar problem that I had. My DNS server from my internet provider wouldn't see some mint repos. I had to edit the dhcp.conf file to add the google dns server 8.8.8.8. You can see my posts in the link below.

Hello,

My first time to post here.

Re dhcp.conf. could you please give me instruction (step by step) on how to edit it. Where is dhcp.conf located?

Sorry for this newbie question.

the issues i had in to Original post has gone, in fact it went away on its own. so i guess this is solved? or should we keep it open for other apt-get errors people may experience. i had a firefox update issue earlier today, but it worked itself out on another attempt

I had a similar issue a while back, my router is setup to use DHCP and OpenDNS nameservers, but apt-get kept throwing errors so I edited dhcp.conf and added the nameservers to my desktop.

I tried this and it worked!!!! Thank you so much. I added the opendns servers to my dhcp.config file and everything seems to be working fine now.]

ChromeMukuro,
I had same problem..solved this way:
doble click on Computer icon>double click on File system icon>double click on ETC folder>
double click on APT folder..in this there is the Sources.list.d Folder...DO NOT OPEN with double click, instead right click on the folder and click OPEN AS ADMINISTRATOR...the folder will then
open in a red background with 2 files: Google-Chrome.list and google-chrome.list.save.
Left click then on this file and move to trash or delete.
Sorry 4 my english..am translating from an italian system.
ciao
