Confused about the update repositories and other

Postby hakona on Sun Mar 17, 2013 11:19 am

Hi folks

I installed Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon (64bit) to test it for the first time.
I've been checking a bit on these forums, and seems to have been previously downtime on the update servers, but I'm unsure if this is the case now though.
I get alot of "failed" during the update when using the update manager.

can anyone advise what's wrong?

my sources list as follows:
Code: Select all
deb nadia main upstream import
deb quantal main restricted universe multiverse
deb quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb quantal partner
deb quantal free non-free
# deb stable non-free main

# deb quantal-getdeb apps
# deb quantal-getdeb games

When I run "sudo apt-get update" I get as below
"Funnet" translates to "found", running Norwegian language...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There is nothing wrong with the output of apt-get. Ign means a file was not found, but can be ignored. You'll notice you get the Ign status on translation files. Ign here means "would have been nice if I could find a translation file, but oh well--it's not there so let's get on with things." Or something :)

So, the "fails" I get when running the update GUI is nothing to worry about?
I presume these translates to the "IGN" messages when doing the apt-get update in terminal?

Yes, the fails in the Update Manager should have been ignores...
