It looks like you have a bad ppa. Go to menu, Administration , software sources and then to other tab. uncheck all your ppa's and try

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
again.
if that works. try the upgrade manager again. if software Sources will not open from menu go to a terminal and type

Code: Select all

pkexec mintsources

post any error message you get.



353/5000
Sembra che tu abbia un ppa cattivo. Vai al menu, Amministrazione, fonti software e poi in altra scheda. deseleziona tutti i tuoi ppa e prova di nuovo [codice] sudo apt update [/ code].
se funziona. provare di nuovo il gestore aggiornamenti. se il software Sorgenti non si apre dal menu, vai a un terminale e digita [codice] mintsources pkexec [/ code]
pubblica qualsiasi messaggio di errore che ricevi.

I don't think i have a bad ppa, ithink the error is given by a official mirror "evowise"

Code: Select all

Errore:7 http://mirrors.evowise.com/linuxmint/packages tara Release.gpg
  Le seguenti firme non erano valide: BADSIG A6616109451BBBF2 Linux Mint Repository Signing Key <root@linuxmint.com>
Anyway, i tried

Code: Select all

pkexec mintsources
and

Code: Select all

mosco@mint-PC ~ $ pkexec mintsources
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintSources/mintSources.py", line 22, in <module>
    import mintcommon
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/mintcommon/__init__.py", line 11, in <module>
    import aptdaemon.client
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptdaemon/client.py", line 45, in <module>
    from .errors import convert_dbus_exception, TransactionFailed
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptdaemon/errors.py", line 41, in <module>
    class AptDaemonError(dbus.DBusException):
AttributeError: module 'dbus' has no attribute 'DBusException'
