update manager error message on Mint 9.

Postby gychang on Wed May 19, 2010 9:51 am

When I try to update I get the error message: Could not download all repository indexes with the detail below.

"Failed to fetch http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu/dists/i ... ackages.gz 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."

Being newbie I am unsure how to correct the problem. I see several repositories in the Software Sources...

Open Software Sources and go to the Other Software tab. Find the entry for dropbox and click the Edit button. Replace isadora with lucid.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
