[SOLVED] What's Up with the Updates

Postby cessanfrancisco on Thu Oct 10, 2013 10:12 pm

My updater has been unable to check for updates lately. I keep getting the following error messages:

ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR###ERROR
W:Failed to fetch http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/rar ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found
, W:Failed to fetch http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/rar ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Does anyone know what that means?

Thanks in advance.

medibuntu isn't around anymore, so you need to select edit from the update manager, and the select prefrences. Then go to the Ignored package tab, and click on Add, and then type medibuntu, and then click ok. Thats it you should be good to go.

Not really the smartest approach.
You do not ignore the packages, you disable or remove the whole medibuntu repository, because medibuntu has been discontinued: The Medibuntu project comes to an end
Note:
On most Mint editions the packages.medibuntu.org line will be found in the file /etc/apt/sources.list.

Thanks.

I'm not near my Linux computer at the moment, but where would I be able to find that package in Mint 15 KDE?

thanks again.

Sorry.

I am sort of new-ish at this. Should I just following the instructions in the link provided by karlchen?

Or you can just follow the recommendations here: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=147271

"Software Sources" on Mint13 can be found here: Menu > Preferences > Software Sources > Other Software
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.

How can I disable this repo in Mint 15? In spite of what has been written elsewhere, this Mint does use the repo as that is what my error messages are saying :wink: .

What worked for me in Mint 15 Cinnamon is in this thread. Good luck, DrT.
