Canadian repos not kept up to date ? [SOLVED]
« on: March 11, 2016, 06:36:09 am »
I was getting notifications from the updater for a while about some updates but the installation kept failing because it could not find the files. I had two peppermint machines with the same problem. I suspect that it had something to do with the repo selection so I change the default "Canadian" source to the main Ubuntu one and after a refresh, all the updates (and some more) went through without issues. Is there away to choose a different repo manually like in Mint ?

Tx

Yeah, navigate to: menu > Preferences > Software & Updates.  From the Peppermint Software tab, select: Download from:.  From the dropdown menu, select a mirror close to your geographical location.  Enter your password when asked and close.  Update the cache when asked.  Now test the connection.  That's it  ;).
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

Before doing that, can  post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updateI only really need say the bottom 15 lines or so .. I think this may be related  Google Chrome if you have installed it

You can also switch to a server in a different country, if you so desire.  It's not like you have to use the Canadian ones.  Just sayin'.

Ok like I said reverting to main source solved the problem.  Thanks to Andy, I learn how to select a proper source now. Didn't know that one.
PcNet, this was the errors from the updater as I use the default Canadian one. ( 2 machines). There is some externals ppa as well  but they work after reverting to the principal archive.

Okay switch to a different server as AndyInMokum and scifidude79 say .. dunno if that'll solve the PPA's though.
