    Update messed up AGAIN :(

    Hello I am back with the same problem except a little different. This time I tried everything to fix the update but I can't seem to get it. When I updated wine to 1.5 I added the wine repository but now I have wine 1.5 but whe I update it gives me this error.

    Failed to fetch http://ppa/  Something wicked happened resolving 'ppa:http' (-11 - System error)

    Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Please help me get this fixed I have run out of ideas. Thanks.

    A) You don't have an update problem. Updates are available - you simply are not getting any updates from the Wine PPA listed.

    B) That does not look like the correct format for an HTTP or PPA link. If you manually changed the APT sources.list file, it was done incorrectly.

    Here is the only thing in my /etc/apt/sources.list

    # deb raring-getdeb app  sgames

    So if you didn't edit the source.list file, where did you add the PPA? That is where you need to look.

    grep -R wine /etc/apt/*

    Well I added backtrack 5 repositories but it didn't work so I removed them. And since then its been messing up. I added them in sources.list and then I removed them. And left the one that was already in there.

    I actually added repos from backtrack 5 which wasn't a good idea. I didn't know until it was to late. then I removed the repos and ever since then its been doing this. So I think I messed up lol
