Ubuntu :: Cannot Download Package Info Via Update Manager

Feb 28, 2010

When I open Update Manager and click "check," it starts downloading package information and then the following pops up: Could not download all repository indexes.

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.45 80]
Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.45 80]
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I opened Software Sources to try and remove the repositories, but couldn't find them. Plus I'm not sure if I need to manually replace these repositories with newer ones- I'm still relatively new at using Ubuntu (made the full switch from windows in October 2009). Plus, whenever I do install updates with the update manager, the "last updated" time doesn't reset itself. It finishes installing the selected packages, and the message at the top of the Update Manager window reads "Your system is up-to-date. The package information was last updated 28 days ago.

This is the error I got when I tried to update it today. On the top the icon for the update manager is a red circle with a white line like a stop sign. When I click on it this is the error message I get. Could not initialize the package information. An unresolved problem occurred while initializing the package information.

please report this bug against "update-manager" package and include the following error message :
'E:Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse),
E:The list of sources could not be read.'

Ubuntu :: Where To Get Info On Update Manager Updates

Feb 24, 2010

Is there an easy way/place to get more info on the updates that the Ubuntu (9.04) Update Manager presents to you? I know you can highlight one and look below at the "Changes" and "Description". But how can you find a real explanation of what the update is? To give one exampe: There's a 5.0MB update called: openoffice.org-writer It appears to be a new version of the Writer program?? or is it just security updates?? Should I install it if I'm happy with the current Writer version? bottom line: where can I get plain talk about what these updates are?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager / Software Sources / Synaptic Package Manager Not Working?

Sep 30, 2010

It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.

I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!

Ubuntu :: Update Manager - Package Manager Won't Work

Feb 4, 2010

Ok so I having the same issue as everyone else but it still exists despite the solutions other people are experiencing. Update manager, synaptic, and apt-get are not working no aptitude on here. Update manager says: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_universe_ i18n_Translation-en%5fUS, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.' apt-get has errors with headers, finding files, and wrong file types. I have gone to a couple locations and the files exist and the hash is correct, and the file types are correct. I have tried replacing the sources file. I have tried sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update with the same problem happening upon updating. In the same exact areas.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Not Restart 10.4 Update After Broken Download

May 2, 2010

I started the upgrade to 10.4 from 9.10 through the update manager. It started the update to 10.4. After downloading almost 95% of the update, it gave an error message of "could not download certain components. downloaded files will not be erased" and stopped the update. I restarted the PC, and started the update manager again. But now it does not show any option of update to 10.4. how do I continue or resume the update process? I just started using ubuntu about 15 days back. So, I am relatively new to this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Synaptic Package Manager Can't Download Packages

Aug 1, 2011

I isntalled Ubuntu 10.04 LTS in a dual boot configuration with Windows 7 (new i5 desktop, 8 GB DDR3) , and after a few gliches solved, Ubuntu runs. The problem I have is when I try to install software with the Synaptic Package Manager, no packages can be downloaded. Also, after I attempt this, no other software can connect to the Internet (even if that software was able to connect before). Rebooting restores connectivity.

Ubuntu :: Update And Package Manager Errors

Jan 15, 2011

I'm totally new to ubuntu and i have a major problem with updating ubuntu, I was looking around for some linux based gaming and came across the online game called "Regnum Online". I installed it and all goes fine until I restart my computer next day, the top panel that usually has daily updates is missing and in its place is a red circle with an x through it I hover over it with my mouse and it reads:
"An error occurred please run package manager from the right-click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong."

Which I then right-click and open package manager and it gives the following response:
"E: Type '<!DOCTYPE' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/onemyndseye-regnum.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.
Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report."

At the bottom of this message reads:
"this usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies."
I don't want to lose my personal files by wiping and reinstalling ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Slow Download Speed On Update Manager

Jul 11, 2010

Ran the update manager, system was pretty much up to date, only a few files to download. Was it ever SLOW. Most of the time I can download from other sites about 650 kB/s. The update was around 10 kB/s and slower sometimes. What is wrong? Just a lot of people updating at the same time?
