apt update [SOLVED]

#1 Post by turtlebay777 » Tue Oct 30, 2018 5:19 pm

When I just typed

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
I was presented with a strange (to me!) comment.

How do I get around the problem please? I love MX and only use Linux but have a slight learning difficulty and easily forget things I've tried to learn from others posts.

Code: Select all

Try another Debian mirror, which can be done in MX Repo Manager.

Tried both mirrors in Netherlands and the one in Denmark. Shall I try them all in case one of them is still working properly?

You would need to change the Debian Mirror not the MX mirror.

OK, how do I change the Debian mirror as the non ticked ones read something else? Thanks for helping.

Click the Debian repos tab, then the button at the bottom that says "select the fastest repo for me". Check to see if the results are different from the bad vorboss repo; if so, change them and see if you still get the error with "apt update".

You can also manually edit the Debian repos in Synaptic and choose from a list of mirrors. https://www.debian.org/mirror/list

OK thanks Stevo and all.

Changing to the fastest one solved it, wish I was a Linux guru like you people!
