Fetch Error with Updates, archive.getdeb.net

Postby shawnhcorey » Wed Dec 05, 2012 2:59 pm

When I run this command:

Code: Select all

apt-get -y update


I get:

Code: Select all

Could someone tell what is wrong and what I can do about it?

Website http://archive.getdeb.net appears to be down. Also the main website http://www.getdeb.net/. Always check in your browser first when you have problems updating, if the websites are even up. I'm not sure of the reason.

GetDeb is down, either you disable it for now or use this solution viewtopic.php?f=47&t=118809&p=656166#p656112

Is it down or have they changed the address? One cannot tell this with a browser.

Good question, but no idea. See zerozero's link for switching to a mirror, which seems to be still up.

GetDeb goes down from time to time. Most of the time they have it back up in a day or two. You can actually find some similar packages on dotdeb.com while you are waiting.
