    Update Messed up


    Hi7 3770kello I don't know what it is but my update manager is messed up. I run the update then it says coulden't get to some of the repositories. And then the little shield that has the check mark has an x in it. I have check the internet connection and i have internet so I don't know why it cant find the repositories
    I don't know how linux updates work yet.

    It happens sometimes. There may be a problem with the repository server or it may just be very busy. Give it a few hours and try again. It's very disconcerting the first few times it happens though

    It wouldn't hurt to post error messages and the output from terminal

    Code:
    inxi -r

    Can you also post the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list as well as any files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d

    I haven't forgotten thins but I won't be at my desktop until tomorrow. That has a Mint VM so I can check your sources.list. From what i can remember though it looks OK. The screen shots are pretty much unreadable so I have no idea what's in your sources.list.d

    As rokytnji said, it would also be helpful to have the error message you get when updating.

    Your sources.list matches mine exactly and I have just run a successful update. I only have one file in sources.list.d called local-repository.list which contains a single commented out line. I'm guessing that you have added a few ppa's hence all the files in sources.list.d and that the error is related to one of them.

    Without seeing the actual error message, I'm afraid there is not much more I can do...

    Yeah elija. If inxi -r would have been ran. It would have shown all active/enabled ppa's used ub Mint.
    Try it in VM.
