I "installed" removed from that link and reloaded repositories and got this error-
Failed to fetch http://archive.removed/ubuntu/dists/ ... ackages.gz 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Did you copy and past the entire line into the terminal? There is a ~ at the end that is easy to miss if you type it. If you are getting connection errors I am not able to help with that, their repo may be temporarily unavailable as sometimes happens.

Hi, I'm a newbie at Linux, installed Mint a few weeks ago and been loving it since. Still, I've got the same problem as rbpyogesh with the removed software source. I add the line "deb http://archive.removed/ubuntu karmic-removed apps" on software sources and the line "wget -q -O- http://archive.removed/removed-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -" on the terminal, and I get OK. But it still doesn't work! Am I getting the CPG key thing wrong? Is there a file for that? I just assumed that terminal line was it...
