You are getting this errors because you still have the Medibuntu repository configured as a software source. The Medibuntu developers have called it quits and abandoned their project, and have shut this repository down. See their announcement about that here: https://launchpad.net/medibuntu/+announcement/11951Failed to fetch http:/packages.medibuntu.org/dists/precise/free/binary-i386/ Packages 404 Not Found
You are advised to remove the Medibuntu repository immediately. To simplify that I've made the following single command for you to run from the terminal, which will automatically remove all the active Medibuntu repositories from your configuration files:
Code: Select all
sudo sed -i '/^deb http:\/\/packages.medibuntu.org*/d' /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list
Q: What was the Medibuntu repository used for? Are there alternatives?
A: Medibuntu was used for just two packages (on 64 bit; I'm not sure about 32 bit as I don't have that here):
- libdvdcss2 - For playback of video DVDs;
- w64codecs - Codecs for certain RealPlayer 10 formats (RV30/40, COOK, and RealAudio).
Update Oct 18th: details and instructions also shared by Clem on the blog today: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2469. From Linux Mint 16 the libdvdcss2 packages will be kept in the Linux Mint extra repository.
Update Oct 30th: added a generic single command to remove the Medibuntu repositories automatically. This will work on all currently supported Linux Mint editions.
