Unable to change default repository in Linux Mint 17.1

Post by anma » Wed Dec 03, 2014 5:10 am

Hello,

This is my first post here. I want to apologise for two things. First if this is not the right section for my topic,
and second - for my english.

A few days ago i've decided to make a clean install of Linux Mint 17.1 on my PC. Everything went fine.
After installation, i've wanted to change the default repository through Software sources.

There was 2 buttons. One for LinuxMint base and second for Ubuntu base.
When i chose the first button, a list with mirrors was opened, but my preferred server(http://mirrors.telepoint.bg/mint_packages/) wasn't there.
Choosing the second button just closed the application.

Is this a bug? Should i report this?

Hi anma,

You are not alone with this issue.

Yesterday I upgraded from 17 to 17.1 through the update manager and I too have noticed I can no longer change the sources for 'Base (trusty)' when I could before.

When opening 'software sources' through the update manager and selecting the 'Main (rebecca)' button the window displaying the mirrors opens and operates normally, however, when selecting the 'Base (trusty)' button the window displaying the mirrors does not open. I would appear that, for me, the system is actually checking the mirrors as my network activity spikes.. however, with no window opening I am unable to either view the results or change the mirror.

When opening 'software sources' directly from the main menu selecting the 'Base (trusty)' button causes the 'software sources' window to close immediately.

I'm running 17.1 cinnamon 32bit, has anyone else noticed this behaviour?

This is what I get after the following actions:
1. Fix MergeList problems;
2. Restore the default settings in Official Reposotiries tab;
3. Choosing the "Second button" in Official Reposotiries tab, 3 times.

Unfortunately, i don't have much time now, to analyze(on programming level) this situation.
I'm glad to see that i'm not the only one.

I confirm that don’t work the “Base (trusty)” selection in mintsources (software sources) ver. 1.3.7 for choosing alternate server, in Linux Mint 17.1. Maybe Mintsources ver. 1.3.7 has a bug.

Here’s the error in choosing another server (alternate server) for “Base (trusty)” in mintsources ver. 1.3.7 (Software sources):

Update..

I have reported this issue on the blog, the 17.1 cinnamon release announcement (http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2714#comment-113462), and so far two other people are also reporting the same issue. Hopefully either one of the devs or another user will be able to interpret the information we've provided and work out what's happening :)

Hi DorianB

My last post was made while your post was waiting for moderation, so I hadn't seen it when I last posted. Just wanted to add a thank you to yourself for confirming this issue, both here and on the blog.

Thanks WT :)

Great release, on the whole very happy..

One potentially troubling issue though. myself and at least one other user cannot change the mirror in use for ‘Base (trusty)’ in software sources. Clicking the appropriate button results in either window closure or the next window failing to open.

There is a thread on the forums, http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=183974 , with possibly relevant terminal outputs from running software sources in terminal.”

Edit by Clem: Can you run it from the command line “mintsources” and tell me if you see any error messages?

Hello,

There is a bug in the mintsources package, which is reported here: https://github.com/linuxmint/mintsources/issues/50
I think that this can be related somehow with our problem.

The bug has also been reported on launchpad, here https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1400096, at this moment it seems that Clem is going to look into the issue, as noted by his response to Dorian in the blog (posted above).

In the unlikely event that Dorian gets no further responses from Clem then we should add confirmations to the bug reports on launchpad and github, with any further info we can provide.

I'm sure Clem will respond though, it may just take a little while, as I'm sure there are many things making calls on his time at this point in the update cycle and our bug seems to be non-critical at the moment.

Hello, Dorian

This is how to change the repositories list manually.
1. Browse to this directory: "/etc/apt/sources.list.d".
2. Open "official-package-repositories.list" as administrator.
3. Make file to look exactly like this:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
deb http://mirrors.serverhost.ro/mint/packages rebecca main upstream import

deb http://extra.linuxmint.com rebecca main

deb http://ro.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ro.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ trusty partner
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While this bug is not fixed, the change can be done only in this way.

Hi anma

I see you've added your confirmation to the bug report on launchpad, if you haven't already can you click on the green text just below the bug title, as shown in this screenshot..

and add yourself as an affected user.

Manythanks

Just a little polite bump to see if any other users have discovered they are affected by this over the last few days.. :)

Also wondering if anyone with connections to the Dev team knows if this issue is being looked into, I completely understand if it's not the highest priority as at present it's not critically affecting the ability to receive updates or install software. I ask as so far there has been no further feed back since Clem asked for terminal outputs in the blog reply mentioned further up this page by Dorian.

Oh, and finally, it goes without saying that if anyone has any idea what either the cause or solution may be then several of us would be delighted to hear from you.

Many thanks :)

I also have this issue.

When I click on "Base (trusty)" button, nothing happens.
The "Main" button works.

If I maximize the "update cache" window, I can see many errors/servers unreachable.

Ginsu543 & UgoRipley

Thanks for adding your confirmations here, it's good to know that more than just a handfull of people are affected. If either of you feel like popping onto Launchpad and confirming the bug there and adding yourselves as affected users it can only help the developers get a sense of the scale of the problem.


UgoRipley

Regarding your screenshot, at first glance the results shown in your screenshot don't seem related to being unable to change the 'base' mirror, although I don't speak Italian so it's hard to be sure. I always get a few 'failed' when using that window and they are always 'translation' files. If you run a

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
in the terminal you will probably see that those same files are marked as 'ign' (in english) ,suggesting ignored rather than failed. If you really do have unreachable servers then running the sudo apt-get update in terminal will show errors at the end of the list.
