Re: Precise repository failure on Mint 13 Maya

Hi Karl, thanks for intelligent reply.

Here are the (last couple of lines) results from the pings:

Code: Select all

--- archive.ubuntu.com ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 111490ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 97.317/97.832/99.268/0.418 ms
--- archive.canonical.com ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 99153ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 11.538/12.076/13.499/0.317 ms
Nothing odd there I think.

I have to admit that I'm also getting some strange effects on all devices on my home network, where web pages fail to complete full loading. I have suspected some sort of odd dns issue, so for good measure here is the output from "dig" on those domains:

But if flakey dns were the problem, surely I'd update ok sometimes?
Now I've done

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
...with the errors on the "update" as before.

but I'm wary of doing "upgrade" because, as I understand it that's the same as moving to a new version on Mint, or is that incorrect?

EDIT: I forgot to answer your other question: I've been getting the problem since sometime in September, but I don't know exactly when. It also went away for a brief period.
EDIT AGAIN: You sparked a little thought, I got synaptic to list the commits, so here they are for September:

Re: Precise repository failure on Mint 13 Maya

Post by wilbobob » Sun Nov 09, 2014 4:46 pm

Cant help with a solution, but I can confirm that you are not alone. I'm running LM13 Cinnamon 64bit on my laptop, and get the red cross in the update manager icon. When I update I get this error message

Err http://archive.ubuntu.com precise/universe i386 Packages
404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.24 80]
Err http://archive.ubuntu.com precise/multiverse i386 Packages

W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/ ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.24 80]

When I acknowledge the error message the Update Manager tells me that I am up to date and the red cross is replaced by a green tick.

I recently applied the level 5 security updates, and I've also recently had an attempt to get a wireless printer to work, during which I downloaded 32bit software. Is this significant?

Ah ha! I think you might be on to something :-)

I think I remember I had to install hplip and some extra printer language driver (zjs??) that was maintained by someone with a color printing business to drive my hp1025nw.

Right now I'm away from the machine for a week, but I'll have a look as soon as I get back.

Thanks for the clue wilbobob :-)

EDIT - it was software from http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com that got my wireless printer working

I've been stumbling around in the dark here, and removed i386 packages for the Canon printer I played with recently, and the one that I've had installed for some time. No change in the error messages.
I thought I was onto something when I went looking at the repository and saw the Packages file there, and was hit by the realisation that it looks like an application is referencing the repository incorrectly. In which case all I need to do is find the application that's doing the calling.
Then I re-read the thread and found I was weeks behind the curve and this has already been addressed. Story of my life in a nutshell.
Ho Hum. Perhaps I'll re-install or upgrade to LM17, though it seems a bit of a wimpy response to a minor problem.

Well that's a surprise, after another reboot updating is working without error, and I have the green tick back. Must have been the drivers for my brother-in-laws Canon printer that I was trying to access wirelessly last week, just for the fun of finding out how to do it.
Hopefully Phoenix1963 will find a similar solution.
