I am getting the error below which is stopping the system from getting updates and even software manager is only showing a small partial list of softwares as compared to what it usually shows.
GPG error: http://archive.ubuntu.com saucy InRelease: Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NODATA' (does the network require authentication?)
I have tried several suggestion based on search results in google but none seem to be working. I have uninstalled sun java and have tried the command sudo apt-get update -o Debug::Acquire::http=true which still results in same issue. I have even removed the 2 webup8 ppa I added...nothing has helped.
My network connection is fine and I do not use any proxy.
I have just done a fresh install of Linux Mint 16 three days back, so in worst case I will do that once again but I would much rather get it resolved on this instance as I have spent quite some time setting things up.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
