Synaptic package manager error

Postby Phookly on Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:08 pm

I was recently trying to install playdeb / getdeb through terminal. I found out the hard way that it's been discontinue. Now I get this error everytime I reload the package manager:
W: Failed to fetch http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/dists/ ... /InRelease

W: Failed to fetch http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/dists/ ... elease.gpg Unable to connect to archive.getdeb.net:http:

W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I'm trying to remove these error so it doesnt happen every refresh. I've already remove the repositories but it still pop up.

I remember doing a sudu su command and a few
echo .......line. Please let me know what I need to do to remove this error. Thx

First, check that these are really not active anymore. Run the following command on the terminal, and check the output for any archive.getdeb.net links. Or share here for us to have a look (you can copy text to/from the terminal, see its Edit menu).
Code: Select all
inxi -r

If it looks clear, try deleting the package index files and generating them anew. You can do so with the following two commands (run them one at a time from the terminal).
Code: Select all
sudo rm -fv /var/lib/apt/lists/*
apt update

GetDeb is still active in your inxi - r output:
Code: Select all
           Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/get-deb.list
           deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu nadia-getdeb apps #GetDeb Apps

Either remove it from the Software Sources, on the Other Software tab, or delete this sources file manually:
Code: Select all
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/get-deb.list
