Re: Update Manager - Failed to Fetch Updates <SOLVED>

Update Manager is working OK again after not working for several days. This update blockage occurred with Linux Mint and Debian based distros but NOT with vanilla Ubuntu distros. I have no explanation for why this happened. Thanks for everyone's help.

Re: Update Manager - Failed to Fetch Updates

Tried in Update Manager, Synaptic and the Terminal. Same errors even though I tried several different mirrors. Same problem on one of my other laptops. Downloads get "stuck". NEVER had this problem before with LM 18. Something wierd going on with LM repositories in the past few days. :(

Re: Update Manager - Failed to Fetch Updates

After doing some research on the web I was able to successfully post all the updates. There seems to be an ongoing APT cache problem from time to time with Linux Mint.

Re: Update Manager - Failed to Fetch Updates

I tried several different mirrors without success. Same result. I haven't run any updates in 2-3 weeks and nothing was changed on the system.

Login from Suspend Screen

Using Mint 18 MATE. Is there any way to change the login screen when coming out of suspend? Such as the background of the screen? It is now black (Ugh!). Thanks.

Xiphos Not Working Properly

Has anyone been able to get Xiphos running properly on LMDE 4 or Debian 10 Buster? The drop down menus don't work the way they should, making the application useless. For me it has only worked well on Ubuntu based distros. Thanks.

Running LM 18 MATE. As of this morning 5/28/20 the weather icon in the panel has stopped working. Is anyone else having this problem with LM 18 or 19? Thanks.

Re: LMDE3 MATE - Long Boot Time

I decided after fooling with this over the past week to just chuck it and install Mint 19 MATE. I spent far more time trying to figure this out than it took me to install LM 19, programs and all my data files. Bootup time is now 50 seconds. I'll just have to wait and see if LMDE 4 (Buster) offers im...

Re: LMDE3 MATE - Long Boot Time

rng-tools5 made no difference in the boot time. Still 80+ seconds. The latest kernel in the repository is 4.9.0-11. I may just have to abandon LMDE3 and return to the main edition with LM 19. Thanks.
