[SOLVED]failed to fetch webaddress during update Mint-KDE-14

Postby Arny006 on Wed Apr 10, 2013 6:56 am

So, now I solved all problems at once.

Apparently, some sources are missing in the original Mint-Repository or missleading to inexistent repos.
That cause error-messages by update/upgrade, not proper installation of local languages (e.g. German) & network slowness.

The solution I adopt: Replace the original sources with modified one & add Kubuntu Quantal 12.10 sources. At end I reinstall the local-language-pack, in my case "language-pack-kde-de" over "Synaptic".

The sources.files are in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
Open the folder with "Alt+F2" and type: kdesudo dolphin
Open files with: kdesudo kate
Following the content of modified Files:

After these stepps, I reccommend to update the sources, the system & the GRUB-Bootloader with following Konsole-commands:
Code: Select all
sudo -s
sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade && sudo update-grub

Don't be scared if you see more than 400 updates/upgrades.
