Postby rblakemesser on Mon Dec 10, 2012 3:47 am

In Linux Mint Nadia (Cinnamon), when I run

Code: Select all

I got the following set of error: I removed http://'s:

The same errors also appear in the Update Manager. Switching download servers to a mirror in the "Software Sources" menu didn't work. and
Code: Select all
 sudo rm -fv /var/lib/apt/lists/* && sudo apt-get update
didnt work either.

Hi, your repositories are configured incorrectly. They have the release name "nadia", which is only for Linux Mint repositories. The repositories on which you get errors are Ubuntu repositories, so in fact the release name should be "quantal" for those. If you don't know how to fix that, please share the output of the following command (and don't remove any http from the output :)):

Hi Vincent. Thanks for your response/help. Here is the output:

Based on this: I fixed a few of them by switching nadia to quantal in the respective files. I narrowed it down to the below repositories. I'm now googling for solutions to those : )

You can also view repositories in your web browser. For Dropbox, it seems the most recent Ubuntu repository is precise (click the link and see the available repositories): http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu/dists/. So I'd try replacing quantal with precise for these two entries perhaps?

I'm not sure what the problem is with the Google repo...

There is no debian nadia
http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/dists/

Open a terminal and copy and paste this into it:

Code: Select all
gksu gedit  /etc/apt/sources.list


then Replace that lin deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian nadia contrib with this one in sources list:

Code: Select all
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian quantal contrib


save the file, then in the terminal copy and paste this:

Code: Select all
 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade


that should fix your problem.

Thank you for the response. I did as you said and when I ran sudo apt-get update I got this message at the end.
