    Failed to fetch copy......

    How do I fix the problem below? Thanks

    Failed to fetch copy:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/dl.dropbox.com_u_7948220_eve_ubuntu-natty_unstable_Packages Encountered a section with no Package: header
    Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    A) It's not a fatal error. It ignores the issue and moves on.
    B) Comment out the dropbox repository line from the /etc/apt/source.list file.
    C) Post complete, specific information about what you're doing when the error is seen. I ran X command, I got Y result. I then tried to change Z...

    Thank you for your reply. (A) I agree, "It's not a fatal error"
    (B) I have searched the "source.list" file for any reference to "dropbox", but there is NO reference to it anywhere
    (C) This shows up "anytime" update manager does updates.

    Thank you HROAdmin26. Sometimes just a little "nudge" in the right direction gets good results. Worked great.
