warning triangle "update info outdated" (Solved)
« on: January 04, 2015, 08:03:53 am »
I have twice had a triangle with "!" in it appear in the panel. When I click on it, it says: "update information is outdated...". When I run software updater it says software is up to date and the triangle goes away.

Based suggestions given to another poster with similar problem I ran "sudo apt update" this ends by reporting:

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

So I tried "sudo apt-get update", which is what I thought that was suggesting I do, but that just reports the same issues.

Is there anything I should do about this?

i had this issue with the default update manager getting this type of error than shortly thereafter it no longer worked.
there is a post in the forums about this. I switched to mintUpdate and now my updates work well and get no more errors.
maybe consider switching your update manager to this and you may find its ok.

Switching update manager will make no difference in this case .. your issue is being caused by duplicate entries in the sources.list

Can you open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run this command:
Code: [Select]
gedit /etc/apt/sources.listthen post the contents of the file that opens back here.

As the contents will be rather long, can you please enclose the output in spoiler tags - (Sp) button in the forum editor

Here's what I get:

Guessing it doesn't matter but terminal also shows a warning:

The gedit "Warning(s)" can be safely ignored.

Can you first backup your sources.list by running:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.baknow open your sources.list for editing:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.listFind the line (second from the bottom) that reads:-

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-security multiverse restricted main universe

and comment it out (by prefixing the line with a # and a space), so it now reads:-

# deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-security multiverse restricted main universe

SAVE the file, and close gedit.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updateif there were no errors, try running a system update now and see if those errors have gone.

No errors listed in terminal after running that or after running "sudo apt update". Software updater says  it is up to date.

I've been having the same issue for about a week. I removed a repo that was causing sudo apt-get update to fail. It's the only repo I've added since this issue began. Now sudo apt-get update runs without errors, but I'm still seeing the triangle icon with an exclamation point for the updater tray icon. (Oddly, I seem to be missing PPAs in my sources.list, there are several 3rd-party repos listed in Synaptic that aren't in the list below).

Anyway, here's my /etc/apt/sources.list:
