Fickle mintupdate

Postby sammi.sammi » Sat Jun 28, 2008 12:58 pm

Mintupdate, when in the corner, is saying something about over 100 new packages to install, given that I've JUST installed xfce daryna again.

When I double-click the icon and enter my password, it's saying 'could not refresh the list of packages'.

How do I fix this please?

The number of updates is expected - that's life :)
I guess it is an internet problem
Open a terminal and run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

You may get some error message "can not connect to...."
The version in Daryna - unlike the latest mintUpdate - cannot recover from that
You could comment out the failing repository by adding two # in front of the line containing it in sources.list

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
