[SOLVED] apt update failure.

Postby cutechaps on Mon Apr 08, 2013 2:58 am

I am running mint 14 nadia, 64 bit version and when I run apt-get update, it gives me following errors and warning. Any idea how to clear it.

Hello cutechaps and welcome to mint,

in your Soruces list place a # in front on this line
deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu quantal-getdeb apps
save the file then run
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
again.

you'll have to do this with administrator privileges.
