    Got a linux mint debian edition OS here. Not logged into for about 2 years.

    Looks like the repos have changed.

    You would need to list the version of Mint. The repositories are for the different releases of the distribution and not by year. Linux Mint 9 is a long term support version which will have support and repositories through April, 2013. Mint 10 and earlier versions are not supported. You might try searching for Mint archived repositories. Ubuntu has archives for older versions, I'm not sure if Mint does?

    10 here how do I upgrade in terminal without doing the iso?

    I am getting farther with sudo apt-get upgrade than with upgrad manager.

    I am hitting a wall with this: The Debian-specific 'min=n' option to pam_unix for specifying minimum
    lengths for new passwords has been replaced by a new upstream option
    called 'minlen=n'. If you are using 'min=n' in
    /etc/pam.d/common-password, this will be migrated to the new option name
    for you on upgrade. If you have configured pam_unix password changing
    elsewhere on your system, such as in a PAM profile under
    /usr/share/pam-configs or in other files in /etc/pam.d, you will need to
    update them by hand for this change.


    I have no idea what that means.

    had something happen when I did apt-get update then upgrade.

    The update manager still cannot refresh.

    uname -a yields Linux park 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Tue Jun 1 04:59:47 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

    Not sure how upgraded I am. I am guessing still 10.

    I am still unable to install aps. Really looks like the dependancy manger is not working.

    Ex. I install midori, but get reply:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    libglib2.0-0 : Breaks: eog (< 3.2.2-3) but 2.30.2-1 is to be installed
    libgnome-keyring0 : Breaks: gnome-keyring (< 3.0) but 2.30.3-4 is to be installed
    midori : Depends: libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 (>= 1.3.13) but it is not going to be installed
    network-manager : Breaks: network-manager-gnome (< 0.9) but 0.8.1-2 is to be installed
    python-apt : Recommends: xz-lzma but it is not going to be installed
    Breaks: python-software-properties (< 0.70.debian-1+) but 0.60.debian-3 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages



    I have used synaptic to filter broken and fix. No luck yet.

    I run inxi in my Antix EEEPC. You can install the script if you wish, It is just for gathering info on your install of Mint.
    Installation - inxi - How to install inxi using a variety of methods. - A newer, better system information script for irc, administration, and system troubleshooters. - Google Project Hosting

    Just a example of info that inxi can spit out from my EEEPC 701SD.

    Code:
    ~$ inxi -r

    Since I run testing. I have no problems with AntiX with dist-upgrades. I am not sure though how Mint works though. Different Animal.

    I'd suggest going to the link below at the Linux Mint forums and reading the article on upgrading and the different methods. It's specific to Mint 9 but most everything applies to other releases and there is a lot of useful info. I don't use Mint so I don't have any experience upgrading it.

    I use LMDE and this is the newest repo list

    Code:
    deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
    deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
    deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
    deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free
    I don't know if you can upgrade from 10 or if a clean install will be needed.
