Flightgear dependencies

Postby Menthe » Thu Jan 31, 2013 5:08 pm

Hello,

I've tried to install flight gear through sudo apt-get install flightgear et through synaptic both time I get the same error of missing dependencies
W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... 1_i386.deb
404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.200 80]
W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... .2_all.deb
404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.200 80]
W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... 2_i386.deb
404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.200 80]

I visited the security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/etc... to find out that the libavdevice53_0.8.4-0ubuntu0.12.10.1_i386.deb wasn't present (hence the error) but other versions of that package were present. Same for all 3 missing packages.

I'm sure it is not a mint problem but maybe someone has a solution for me

Thanks

The flightgear package doesn't depend explicitly on an obsoleted version, at least not on Linux Mint 14. Have you refreshed your package indexes? Software Manager and Update Manager do that for you; from the terminal you need to remember to do that yourself (no hand-holding here :wink:). I'm not sure if Synaptic does this at startup, but it has a "Reload" button that will refresh the package indexes. Or from the terminal:

Code: Select all

apt update

If that doesn't work, please share the output of:

Code: Select all

apt-get install --simulate flightgear

And share your Linux Mint version.

Thank you xenopeek. The solution via the terminal worked as advertised. Apparently Synaptic doesn't auto refresh the indexes.
