    update issues


    I haven't given up on Linux yet but I am getting close I love the concept but I find it really hard to understand somethings. We I get an error I often will google it and see what comes up, and try to fix it. THis seems to create more problems.

    I am looking for help with the update that has not worked since a fresh install.

    When I update in the terminal I get the following:


    Code:
    Ign file: binary/ Release.gpg
    Ign file:/usr/share/local-repository/ binary/ Translation-en

    Can someone please give me the steps to solve this? I would like to know what I am doing wrong to have these problems. The linux mint forum is next to useless for tech help, and I am feeling frustrated I cannot fix it.

    Pls help

    Are you familiar with editing the following:
    /etc/apt/sources.list
    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ (anything here -- may or may not exist)?

    If not, please post their contents (especially, the first)

    I'll be gone for at least the next twelve hours, so please
    anyone helpful, jump in should OP reply!


    I haven't used Mint in a while! But I recommend your trying peppermint One before giving up completely on GNU/Linux!

    How can I get that list?

    Is this correct?

    Code:
    \\deb Repository - Linux Mint julia main upstream import
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick main restricted universe multiverse
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick-updates main restricted universe multiverse
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick-security main restricted universe multiverse

    I don't know how you are updating, but normally you would go to Synaptic, reload, mark all upgrades, and apply, or let update manager automatically check for updates and click install updates. You can manually update with apt from the command line, but that is more work.

    MASONTX is correct in saying Synaptic is easier, but the command line is freer!

    This is an example of a LinuxMint sources.list I had, slightly modified
    PHP Code:
    deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ julia main upstream import
    #deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ isadora-lxde main upstream import

    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick main restricted multiverse universe
    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick restricted main multiverse universe

    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-updates main restricted multiverse universe
    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-updates restricted main multiverse universe

    deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu maverick partner
    deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu maverick partner

    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick-security main restricted multiverse universe
    deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick-security restricted main multiverse universe

    deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ maverick free non-free
    deb-src http://packages.medibuntu.org/ maverick free non-free

    #deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu maverick-getdeb apps
    #deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu maverick-getdeb games 
    These are very useful, if you have not seen them yet --
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
    [all variants] Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto - Ubuntu Forums

    Oh yes, next time, please post data with URLs included (as the sources.list file) in between PHP <code>

    Thank you for the help.

    When I use the update manager I get the following screen:

    Code:
    Failed to fetch http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu/dists/maverick-getdeb/Release.gpg  Something wicked happened resolving 'archive.getdeb.net:http' (-5 - No address associated with hostname)

    Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz  404  Not Found
    Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I am wondering how to fix this and what I am doing wrong to get these errors.

    I am using Linux Mint gnome 10 32bit.

    This is my sources list:
    Code:
    deb Repository - Linux Mint julia main upstream import
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick main restricted universe multiverse
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick-updates main restricted universe multiverse
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick-security main restricted universe multiverse
    deb Index of /ubuntu maverick partner
    deb Medibuntu -- Medibuntu packages maverick free non-free
    
    deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu maverick-getdeb apps
    deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu maverick-getdeb games
    Once I complete the update I get a message about all updates not being completed/successful.

    I also get this error:
    Code:
    E: /var/cache/apt/archives/faenza-icon-theme_0.9_i386.deb: trying to overwrite '/usr/share/icons/Faenza-Dark/apps/22/covergloobus.png', which is also in package faenza-icons-mono 0.9
    Thanks for any help

    I'm sorry, HaNgoc, but the last Mint version I've used was LinuxMint-9-LXDE, so I can help you no further. LinuxMint Debian Edition is recognized in certain forums as being significantly different than Debian per se (itself) -- you may wish to keep that in mind, too, if pertinent.

    Someone else?

    Third party sources are not working and you have to disable those sources. Press Alt+F2 and type this
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    It will open sources.list file in Gedit with root privileges. Put # before all the lines having word ppa, google, dropbox and skype. Save file and execute this in Terminal :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean all
    sudo apt-get update
    Post error message here, if any.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You have mixed a lot of sources. Execute this in Terminal
    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    Post output here.
