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.

Re: Could not download all repository indexes

Post by TheDynamicHamza21 » Mon Dec 09, 2013 4:33 am

There is a problem with your sources list

http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/petra/main/source/Sources

Ubuntu Petra doesn't exist it should read saucy not petra.

You can try this

http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=152207#p792923

or open a terminal and copy and paste this into it:

Code: Select all

gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list
then ensure your sources list looks like this or copy and paste this into the file:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ petra main upstream import
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ saucy partner

# deb http://archive.removed/ubuntu saucy-removed apps games

then save the file then copy and paste this into the terminal

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
That should fix your sources list.

Hi

Editing the list actually didn't worked, the list was correct but it still tried to use url's with petra instead of saucy.
I got the feeling that this list wasn't used, however I solved it by editing the url's manually, that helped.
