Failed to fetch... http://packages.linuxmint.com/dists/maya

Postby Schrödinger's Cat on Fri Jun 15, 2012 6:15 pm

I've been having troubles updating for the past week or so. Some of the updates go fine, but a lot of the downloads fail. Now it looks like there are two repositories causing problems...

I'm running Linux Mint 13 with Cinnamon 64-bit.

Here's the error message I get:

yeahh :mrgreen: anyway
Code: Select all
ftp://ftp.deb-multimedia.org squeeze
shouldn't be in your sources.list unless you are waiting for a breakage :shock: that is a debian repo and shouldn't be used with ubuntu-based systems.

regarding packages.linuxmint i can't reach it tonight either.

I've started using a mirror for the packages.linuxmint.com repos. Find one near you here, http://www.linuxmint.com/mirrors.php. Look in the Mirrored Repositories section of this page.

Also, don't forget to update your preferences file, in particular this line:
Code: Select all
Package: *
Pin: origin packages.linuxmint.com
Pin-Priority: 700


Change the packages.linuxmint.com entry to match the name of the mirror you're using.

So if I wanted to use the one from Waterloo (Canada), I click on the link and get http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/linuxmint/

How do I turn that into a repository entry? Just replace packages.linuxmint.com with mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/linuxmint ?

you can do that within synaptic

edit: this way you're not *updating* the /etc/apt/preferences file to match the new repo, so you have to manually change the rule as squeezy shows you bellow :D

No, you want to use the one listed on that mirrors page,

Code: Select all
http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/linuxmint-packages/

If you're editing your sources.list file directly, replace packages.linuxmint. com with the string above.

Your new entry would look like this:
Code: Select all
deb http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/linuxmint-packages/ maya main upstream import


Then update your preferences file to so the packages.linuxmint.com entry looks like this:
Code: Select all
Package: *
Pin: origin mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca
Pin-Priority: 700


EDIT: zerozero shows the easy way :D That method does not update the preferences file so you still need to do that.

One thing I'll mention, is that not all the same updates were available on the mirror as the ones in the original packages.linuxmint.com ... But I'm sure that it's just a one or two day delay, and I don't think that will make a huge difference in my life.

packages.linuxmint.com - is down for me, but changing the mirrrors helped, choose the local mirror if it's possible on your end, mine however is currently set to the mirrorservice since that's the local british server and that helped me to update the system.

As this the main Mint repo link, packages.mintlinux.com gets obviously overloaded with requests at times. So choosing an alternate repo closer to you is probably the best choice on the long term.
