Release file expired

Postby ormu on Tue Nov 27, 2012 4:42 pm

When I try to do 'apt-get update' (or update package lists in Synaptic) I get an error message:

E: Release file for http://debian.lth.se/lmde/latest/dists/ ... /InRelease is expired (invalid since 117d 10h 22min 1s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.


Everything worked earlier today but not now. Contents of sources.list here:

Sources are ok. Can't reproduce this (the actual InRelease is good), maybe they got the mirror out of sync or under maintenance (that's possible, I saw they had UP4 as incoming a few days ago).

I tried to change to another mirror but it gives the same error:

E: Release file for http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linux ... /InRelease is expired (invalid since 119d 23h 16min 29s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.

Same problem with debian.linuxmint.com repositories...

What is this supposed to do? Disable validity check? I don't currently have that file, probably because I removed mintupdate-debian a while ago.

probably the easiest fix is to reinstall MU-debian (even if you are not going to use it) or creating the file 80mintupdate-debian with that one liner might also work (never tried it tho)

Hm, thanks, that worked. The file name doesn't even have to be "80mintupdate-debian".
