[SOLVED] Synaptic Packet Manager won’t update again.

Post by Bob M » Sat Jun 16, 2018 9:13 pm

Well wouldn’t it rock you? The fault considered fixed in thread: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=270922 has resurfaced.

So, following the previous instructions this is what I’ve got now.

First, please don't post reams of text like that. Enclose output in-between [ⅽode] and [/ⅽode] code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply.

Second, the cause is clearly stated right there in the text you posted. Remove that PPA.

Hello, Bob M.

To support what catweazel already suggested:

If I try to visit the moka webpage which triggers the error message 403 Forbidden I will read the same error message in my webbrowser as well.
Located the Launchpad moka PPA homepage and read this near the top of the page:
##################################################

This PPA has been deprecated!!! Use ppa:snwh/ppa

##################################################
So follow catweazel's advice and remove the moka PPA completely.

Regards,
Karl

P.S.:
In case you really need moka stable, here is the homepage of the PPA which is suggested as the replacement of the moka (daily) PPA: PPA for snwh.org, where Sam Hewitt also offers moka.

Thanks Karl.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to remove that line.

Open Software Sources from the application menu --> PPAs --> remove the one for Moka.
