Problem with update manager (Resolved)

Update manager gave me a warning that there had been no update for 14 days.
So as requested I ran it manually.

I was told that 2 repositories were not responding so I ran a check on the best mirror for my location and yet again the same 2 repositories did not respond.

I was able to remove one but I can not find the following one listed in update manager.

http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/universe/binary-i386/Packages

Dose anyone know it this repositories is still work and if not how to remove it.

Thanks in advance.

Erm… change to a UK mirror (Server for the United Kingdom) in Synaptic.
then close synaptic, and run:

sudo apt-get update

and if you get errors, post what they are.

Also send the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list:

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and remind us which distro/version you are running ::slight_smile:

W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/universe/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.169 80]

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I got this whilst running the update.

Running Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal - Release i386

Open sources.list for editing:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Find the line that reads:

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy universe
(it's near the bottom)

and comment it out, so it reads:

# deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy universe

SAVE the file, then run:

sudo apt-get update

and check for errors.

Ok worked like a dream lots of updates for me to install.

Why did this happen as it was working OK until now?

Thanks for your help.

I’m not sure… all I can tell you is that line is trying to access an “Edgy Eft” (Ubuntu 6.10) repository.

Maybe it was taken offline as edgy is “end of life”, but I’d be fairly sure it shouldn’t have been in your sources.list in the first place… you’ve already got the “natty universe” repo further up your sources.list

deb http://nl3.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty universe

So I have no idea how that line came to be there.

Thanks for your help.
