Olivia Cinnamon

Post by pbanerjee »

Hi,

Could someone take a look at this please?

Is there something wrong in my /etc/apt/sources.list ?

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ olivia main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ olivia-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ olivia-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ olivia partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ olivia free non-free
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import

I keep on getting "Could not refresh list of packages" and "unable to locate package.." error.
Any help will be valuable.

Cheers

I'm not sure if this applies to all of the repos listed, but for non-mint repos you usually have to replace the Mint name with its Ubuntu equivalent.
ie. Try:

Code: Select all

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ raring partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ raring free non-free
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import
Home PC: Xubuntu 14.04 x64, Nvidia GTX650, i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, Asus Xonar DX

Correct, any Ubuntu or Medibuntu repository should have the distribution name "raring" and not "olivia" (Olivia is the Linux Mint 15 distribution name, while the Ubuntu and Medibuntu repositories expect a Ubuntu distribution name--Raring for Linux Mint 15).

Second, the last line is a duplicate of the first line. So I'd delete the last line.

Mint 15 is based on Ubuntu 13.04 and that uses "Raring Ringtail" on ubuntu servers, not "Olivia".

You can use these link to find what you need to change those to.

All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....

In Oliva, it looks like that /etc/apt/sources.list has been ignored to the package management system, but /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list has been used insted...
Try this, as it will help me a lot:
Look for the application called terminal, open it, then paste this into the terminal:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list
Post the output of the command.

Thanks,
Ahad

Thanks to all of you for taking time out from your busy lives...

I changed the /etc/opt/sources.list file as :
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
pbanerjee@pbanerjee-Satellite-C600 ~ $ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ raring partner
deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ raring free non-free
#deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ olivia main upstream import

# deb http://archive.removed/ubuntu oneiric-removed apps
# deb http://archive.removed/ubuntu oneiric-removed games
# deb http://archive.removed/ubuntu raring-removed apps games

pbanerjee@pbanerjee-Satellite-C600 ~ $
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thereafter, refreshing repository gave following error (pasted only first few lines):
