Updates on LM 18 don't work

Hello,
I've upgraded to LM 18 through command line yesterday. Everything works fine, but the update manager icon looks broken (red x) and when I want to refresh available updates I get:

failed to install http://extra.linuxmint.com/dists/sarah/ ... 4/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 68.235.39.11 80]
Zlyhalo stiahnutie http://extra.linuxmint.com/dists/sarah/ ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 68.235.39.11 80]

And the message continues but I'm not able to see it because it somehow doesn't fit into my screen. I tried to make the window smaller and I tried to move it, but it just won't show the bottom part of the dialogue window. All other windows look normal, this happens with Download centre only.

There is no extra repository for Sarah. Remove this configured repository or you may post active repositories if you need more help:

Code: Select all

@Distro-Don , I suggest that you should start a new topic in the LMDE section of the forums.

Ok, I'm really stupid
I tried the command you suggested and got a quite a lot of info.
But it seems that copy-paste in the terminal doesn't work? I tried both normal ctrl+c, ctrl+v and Shift+Ctrl+c that I used to use in the older systems.It doesn't work. How do I copy paste from this new terminal ? It's not even called terminal anymore, its UXterm and XTerm and I'm not sure which one to use.

edit: OK, now I found out you have to use English shortcut ctr+shift+p to insert comething INTO the terminal, but I still don't know how to copy

Redirect command output to a file then open report with xed. Notice inxi command options -Src0, trailing character is digit zero 0.

Code: Select all

cd /run/shm
inxi -Src0 > report
xed report

Hold down the left mouse button and drag it across what you want to copy.

Then, click the right mouse button and select Copy from the menu.
