Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Any help would be appreciated!

Made you your own topic. Please open the terminal application and type the following command followed by enter. Share the output of the command here. It will tell us your current repository configuration, so we can share what exactly you should change. You can copy text to/from the terminal, see its Edit menu.

Code: Select all

Open a terminal or press Alt+F2 and run this command to edit your repository configuration.

Code: Select all

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

The Ubuntu and Mendibuntu repsotiroies have somehow ended up twice in your repository configuration. Once correct, once incorrect. From your file, remove the 5 lines (line 2 through 6), marked in red below. If you remove those 5 lines, save & close the file, you should then be able to use Update Manager normally. Open Update Manager and press the refresh button should now work without errors.
