Since there doesn't seem to be any solutions to this so far, I'm going to spend some time re-installing LinuxMint 18.1 Cinnamon 64bit again. And seeing if I can find out at what point this software source error message comes up when changing the source mirrors. Starting with a fresh install with not...

Re: Adobe Flash update authentication warning

Yup, I get it. The software source does indeed have a release file. So why would my LM 18.1 install believe it does not? Perhaps we could get user Pepi to post some diagnostic info too to see if it's similar?

Re: Install Nvidia proprietary drivers in LinuxMint UPDATED

Hey folks,

Just a heads up that if you have always trust and select security updates in your update manager selected, a recent level 4 security update called xorg server breaks your Nvidia proprietary driver. All that is needed is a re-install of the driver.

Re: Something has broken my Linux games

This has been solved. I strongly suspect a LinuxMint update broke the Nvidia proprietary graphic driver. The solution was to re-installed the same version Nvidia driver.
