Could not download all repository indexes

Postby borgward » Mon Jul 10, 2017 3:56 pm

Keep getting message when trying to update:

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.

Try disabling the google repo http://dl.google.com/linux/talkplugin/deb/ as it doesn't seem to reachable at this time.

It doesn't matter, the result is the same.
Open software sources -> PPAs -> remove the checkmark in front of the ppa -> click at the top right the button to refresh the cache.
