Help! "Could not download all repositories index" error

Postby abzuexnihilo on Fri Dec 21, 2012 5:20 pm

I just downloaded LMDE, and I used Update Manager to download all the updates. But then I got this error immediately after clicking on Update Manager:

Could not download all repository indexes

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.


Failed to fetch http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dists/ ... ackages.gz 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dists/ ... ackages.gz 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


What do I need to do??

:shock: :shock: that is one of the original isos (either sept 2010 or dec/jan2011) those isos are old, broken and any attempt to update them is a waste of bandwidth and time.
please d/l and install the latest iso http://www.linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php
