Update Notice. (SOLVED)
« on: September 30, 2017, 08:29:58 am »

When I run the update icon, and before it shows the list of updates, I get the following notification:

Spoiler (click here to view / hide)
[close]

I have no idea how I ended up with this notice or what caused it. What do I need to do to make this go away? Please don't tell me I have been hacked. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

GEMS.

I don't have access to my PC right now. Is this an official repo? If not, you could just remove the PPA from your source.list.d
You can find it in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

No you've not been 'hacked', at some point you've added the official PPA for GRadio .. it seems the PPA owner has now taken that PPA down (now cchoosing to distribute it solely from github) so you'll simply want to remove/disable that PPA.

If you're not sure how, please post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d
