    Update Problems Cannot download repositories


    Hi Everybody.
    Before I start I wanted to say thanks for helping.

    I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron

    Im having a problem downloading my respositories.

    i get the following message
    Could not download all repository indexes

    Because this forum wont allow me to post any URL's without first posting 15 lines I cannot show my original message with the Url's from the /etc/apt/sources.list . . . . does anyone have a solution to this?

    Or can anyone help me without looking at the /etc/apt/sources.list

    it doesnt matter if I input new addresses to a mirror site or whatever it still wont donwload. however it will still download from a few select repositories that were originally on it,

    Are you referring to the output of sudo apt-get update ?

    That needs to be done once in a while or the cached package links fall out of date. If that's what's failing, then do please post your sources.list file.

    You can wrap in "CODE" tags or uncheck the "Automatically parse links in text" and "Automatically retrieve titles from external links" boxes (in advanced) to prevent urls from auto-translating in the reply.

    Ok here are the lines. I had to replace h t t p with xxxx and the u r l with XXX

    Anyhow I have tried to use other mirror sites with other terms on the end while varying them to try to get them to work but none of them have.

    the lines that start with dell-mini work and the line that starts with wine also work but none of the others work.

    Thanks again

    Help Updating

    Hi Everybody and thanks in advance for your help.
    I already posted this once but I guess it got pushed down the page to fast for someone to read/answer.

    Anyhow I am using Hardy Heron 8.04 and I am having a problem with my update manager.
    I get the following problem with with one of my repositories I download from and any and all repositories I try to add or use instead of this one.

    "Could not download all repository indexes"
    here is my source.list file . . . . one thing I do want to let people know is yes 1 I dont know too much about about repositories etc. but I do want to say that I have added a couple of repositories with multiverse universe in varyin order several times over to see if I could get them to work to update since I couldnt get the main repository to work so I am sure that there are more repositories than needed in this list and I am sure that I have written the endings wrong (e.g. multiverse universe etc.). So basically what I want to say is that I think even after the file repositories are written correctly there will still be a problem because the problem occurred before I did anyting to change them.

    in particular I am having a problem with the first lines in the list.

    please note that I have deleted the http out so that I can post the source.list because the forum will not allow me to post URL's without first posting 15 times and the code wrapper doesnt work to get around this problem.

    once again thanks in advance

    Two things I'm seeing right away.
    1) the lack of "http" tags in front of the :'s, these will be necessary.
    2) I was verifying the link validity on at a time and have found archive.ubuntu.com is out for the count (alive, but slower than cold molassas)... replacing with gb (based on one of your other (commented out) entries), much faster.

    Rearrainged a few other things that may or may not have caused issues, makes it all nice and easier to read. Try this one and see if it works.

    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    after replacing the contents with below and saving,

    sudo apt-get update

    cross you fingers.

    Hi D-cat thanks for your patience and sorry for the delayed response.

    Alright first things first.

    I tried the command you suggested

    gksu gedit/etc/apt/sources.list

    it then asks for my password and then it gives me another prompt and thats it.

    I orginally just used the gedit command to show you all of the data I showed you. I dont really know whats going wrong there. Anyhow I then tried to go through gedit and edit it and predictably it wouldnt let me alter it because im not in root. Im not exactly sure how to solve that problem.

    Anyhow I tried to alter the respositories via the gui "Software Sources" under system and then administration.

    I was able to alter the first line as you suggested and put in gb as you said . . . for some reason that still didnt solve it . . . .

    btw I had to delete the h t t p part you noted before because the forum wont let me write that word in any shape or form without first posting 15 times regardless of the code wrapper etc.

    Anyhow to get down to it I think if we can solve the gksu problem I might be able to try your repositories suggestion again and this time it might work because I might not have put it in right when I put it into the "Software Sources"

    So thanks for the help agian I appreciate it.

    Fofire

    gksu gedit/etc/apt/sources.list
    Missing a space between gedit and /etc/apt/sources.list

    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Sometimes it's the simple things.

    Hi D-cat
    Thanks for the more than speedy response

    I dont think it worked I am gonna send the code I got back so you can see everything that happened but give me a sec to get rid of all of the http's so it will let me post them . . . either that or I am gonna make 10 or so quick posts
