mintupdate problem [SOLVED]

Post by biggocharley » Sat Jun 21, 2014 12:18 pm

tried to upgrade mintupdate to the latest version and get the following:
"W: Failed to fetch http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .6_all.deb
404 Not Found"

Did this both with the mintupdate tool and also with synaptic with the same results.
running a new install of mint 17 Qiana 64 bit and running mint update for the first time.

I checked the repository setting on synaptic and as far as I can telll they are correct.

Help would be appreciated

was able to fix my own problem with the following

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get- upgrade mintupdate 
and

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
The first command triggered a massive upgrade that ran for possibly 10 or 12 minutes and the second command apparently cleaned up some "loose ends"
Everything seems ok now. the mintupdate tool upgraded mintupdate with no issues.
