[Solved] Internet works but cannot update Mint via apt or update manager

Post by sunewbie »

Hi,
It has been a long time since I posted something on Mint forum.
I have Linux Mint 18 64 Bit Cinnamon.

Recently I changed my ISP from Hathway to a local cable operator. Internet is working fine, but I cannot update Mint via Update manager or via sudo apt-get update
Some packages are downloaded, but I cannot update all packages

Port 443 is closed and I cannot download Opera or Google Chrome or Fsearch.

I have iBall Baton 300M MIMO Wireless-N Broadband Router. Data from ISP is connected via LAN cable. Local machine is connected to router via wifi or WLAN (desktop). I have Mint on my desktop. This router is given by the company itself.

I googled and tried some options. I have even disabled Router's SPI firewall, enabled DNS with address -
DNS: 8.8.8.8 and secondary DNS is 8.8.4.4

Added some ports like 80, 23, 1080, as TCP in VPN, but still it didnt solved the issue.

Please find output of sudo apt-get update:

Disable all PPA's and try again.

By the way: consider a clean re-installation without all those PPA's (with the exception of Google Chrome). From the looks of it, your system has been spoiled by Grub Customizer, whose damage cannot be undone.

I also have Mint 17 XFCE
Initially when I refreshed repos, it downloaded something, upon apt-get upgrade, it warned that some packages cannot be authenticated, I went ahead with both graphical and command line but I get error

Upon refresh I get this error:

Code: Select all

GPG error: http://extra.linuxmint.com qiana InRelease: Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NODATA' (does the network require authentication?)
upon update, I get this error

Code: Select all

E: Unable to correct missing packages.

As you have suggested, I will also remove all PPAs and then try to install updates in Mint 18 cinnamon

I searched internet and identified the problem. Tried on older Mint 17 XFCE Quiana which uses trusty base

My ISP, which is a local cable operator (I am in Mumbai, India), is using a transparent proxy.

https://askubuntu.com/questions/474549/ ... entication

I connected to internet via a mobile wifi hotspot (Internet provided by Airtel)

Ran the command

Code: Select all

wget -O - http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty/InRelease
result (Airtel broadband)

As said by @bain
Your mobile broadband provider is running a faulty transparent proxy. The URL http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty/InRelease should return "404 Not Found". Instead it returns "200 OK" but sends 404 content. Since the URL is "OK", apt copies the content to /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/extras.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_trusty_InRelease and attempts to use it, and then complains that it is incorrect.

The problem here is not Ubuntu, it is the transparent proxy of your mobile broadband provider. You might be able to contact them to fix it.
Now, the question is can I bypass Transparent Proxy? Please help.

Re: [Solved] Internet works but cannot update Mint via apt or update manager

Issued is solved.
Initially I enabled DNS from router and added global DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 but it didnt work. Then I edited network connection. In IPv4, I changed from automatic to manual added my computer's IP address which in my case is 192.168.1.202,

IP: 192.168.1.202
netmask is 225.225.225.0
default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

DNS: 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4

Note, if you get another window like this one in the screen below, leave Routes blank.

Note: After you reopen Network Connections, if you see netmask as 24, leave it, it still works :)
