Error Occurred says Update Manager

Post by Jim1440 » Tue Mar 27, 2018 4:45 pm

About 16 months ago when i first started using LM I had a long hard time getting my printer to work (Epson WF-3540) Never figured out what made it start working, but worked fine all these months. This time all was much easier and my printer works BUT now the Update Manager gives the following error. Can someone interpret please? Thanks.

You can just ignore that and install the updates it gives you. Apparently the Epson software source isn't as well protected as it should be, but ordinarily such a warning shouldn't prevent you from using it.

Don't know if this matters or not but...The warning never came up until after I had installed the driver and then hit REFRESH on the Update Manager. Now it keeps coming up anytime I hit REFRESH. Appreciate your responding so quickly. Thanks.

If you find the warning to be annoying, you might want to disable the Epson source. After all, your device is already working as it should, so driver updates are no necessity....

Well, not sure how that would be done but it is okay for now i suppose. Wanted to thank you for all your help. Also just worked my way through your "Ten Things..." and really appreciate all the work you did. I went through those when I installed Mint the first time (16 or so months ago). Appreciate your detail and accurate instructions.
