<SOLVED> Failed to update to Mint 18.3 !!

Postby TheDesigner » Tue Dec 05, 2017 4:01 pm

Hi L.M.F members.

Lately i was planning to update my system, from Linux Mint Cinnamon Sonya 18.2 to Sylvia 18.3, the problem is when i entered Update Manager and clicked refresh a window appeared after downloading some packages saying that "could not download all repository indexes", so i headed for mirrors to change it, yet NOTHING, then i clicked Software Sources > additional repositories to unchecked CD-ROM option, and i updates the cache, yet ... NOTHING, and this is weird for me,

Guys i let you a screenshot in hope you can help me with this problem.

Thank you all for your efforts, i appreciate it.

Disable repository getdeb and retry updating.

it actually worked, the error didn't appear to me, but this is strange thing, but when i click Refresh, and its done normally, i don't see "update to linux 18.3" in Edit menu, Update Manager!! and that's the whole point.

Nothing yet, some mirrors i changed it successfully, while some cause the same error when i update the cache, is there any another way to update linux rather then Update Manager?
