mintinstall update coming back with 404 error

Postby davesimplewear » Thu Mar 12, 2009 6:27 am

Hi, for the last few days I hve been installing updates, but there is a persistent problem with the mintinstall update 5.3.6 as as soon as the rest of the updates are installed this one returns a 404 error, so is the web address wrong?

??
There has been other updates that originate from our server so I don't really see any reason for this
But - if you only had this one that was a Mint update there could be a problem with your internet connection

This is the error returned each time I try to install this through the mint update program as all other internet use is ok I can't see that being the problem, thanks for your help anyway.

Oops - something is wrong
The 5.3.6 is gone the version now is 5.3.7
Use this link to download it
http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .7_all.deb
Save and double click
If the error still remains ignore it for a while - it should go away over time
