Can't Update to LMDE Update 5

Postby LinuxMint123 » Sat Sep 22, 2012 12:22 pm

Hello:

I keep receiving the following message when trying to download the most recent repository indexes.

ERROR:
Could not download all repository indexes

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

/etc/apt/sources.list should look like this:

Code: Select all

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main upstream import
deb $MIRROR/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb $MIRROR/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb $MIRROR/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

where $MIRROR is one of: http://debian.linuxmint.com | http://debian.lth.se/lmde | http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian

You're missing the "latest" part of the URL in some places and the "lmde" part in others.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
