« on: October 20, 2014, 06:00:14 am »
The Software Updater has been failing to download repository information recently. I noticed a couple failing as you can see below. Any ideas?

Welcome to Peppermint, Yochanan,

I had the same issue:

http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,1081.msg9264.html#msg9264

An hour or so later I went to update again, and I could update again.  The problem vanished on its own!

Ubuntu does appear to be having issues with updating that are affecting some computers while not others.  PCNetSpec, who you will fortunately get to know in time, is looking into this issue for us.  He will give us a solution when there is one.  Right now, we're still waiting.

So to be on the safe side of things, Yochanan, right now go into your Menu, and then to System Tools, and then to Software Updater and click Software Updater .    Do this regularly.  This will keep you updated.  ;)

Now, here's a trick for here at Peppermint.  I'm going to take your code and make it easier to work with:

Here's your code.  We'll call it Yochanan's code -- in honor of you, Yochanan!

Yochanan's code:

How did I do this magic?  :-\

Easy, do you see the box, above the crying egg figure, the one with Sp in it?  Well, I highlighted all your code and then I clicked that box once.  This helped me make your code more manageable to to work with within your post.

We use the Spoiler tool a lot here at Peppermitnt because we work with lots and lots of code, and this tool makes it all easier to manipulate.

So, Yochanan, first try updating your system again.  Let's see if this problem has corrected itself.

And then, for fun, edit your post, highlight your code, and click the Sp once.  See if you can shrink up that code.

And then report back to us.  We're curious if this updating problem is only temporary for you -- as it was for me.

Thank you, Yochanan, and welcome to Peppermint forum!  :)

Update, a few hours later:

Yochanan, first do what PCNetSpec says below.

Your problem is that the "ppa:a-v-shkop/chromium" PPA doesn't contain software for "trusty" (Ubuntu 14.04, and therefore Peppermint 5)

Disable that PPA, then check an update again.

If you need help disabling that PPA just ask, and please post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep chromium

Thanks for the replies. I disabled ppa:a-v-shkop/chromium and no longer get the error. I added ppa:chromium-daily/stable/ubuntu trusty main instead.

I don't get the need for a chromium PPA at all ?

37.0.2062.120-0ubuntu0.14.04.1~pkg1049
is in the default repos anyway ;)
