APT stopped working, so it appears.

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


What is wrong? I have amd64 microprocessor. Why is apt trying to ftp from a subfolder called binary-386 ? Where did that mangled URL come from?
Do I need to change something on my PC?

Mepis 12 64bit comes with 'multiarch support' already enabled {the package lists for both the amd64 & i386 architectures get downloaded during a `apt-get update`}.


Maybe temporarily disable i386 and do a reload with apt-get update to see if that will clear the hashsum mismatch error.

Code: Select all

su -c 'dpkg --remove-architecture i386 && apt-get update'


If that clears the hashsum mismatch error, I would try the following to re-enable the i386 architecture:

Code: Select all

su -c 'dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get update'
If you're not currently using any i386 packages you can maybe skip reenabling i386.

Is there a way of checking whether a package is i386 if it's installed?
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

This will show the i386 packages that are installed (it can be run as a regular user or root)

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | grep ' i386 '

Did you try temporarily disabling i386 like I mentioned earlier? If so did it clear up the hashsum mismatch error?

Since you have all those i386 packages installed, you should re-enable i386 after temporarily disabling it.

Dunno know what this means. I ran it three times because I had KDE user programs open when I first tried, so closed them and then found another editor open, closed it, and then tried again.

So apparently it won't let you remove the i386 architecture since you currently have i386 packages installed, just try the `apt-get update` by itself.

Re: No inxi says the MEPIS12 64 bit repo man.

I'm pulling from the same Debian repo, and am not seeing any error. Could apt have some local file on your machine that has the wrong hash for "Packages"? Since you are the only one with this error, this seems likely.

Hmmm--the net says to remove all files in this directory and "apt-get update":

Code: Select all

su -c 'rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*'


But this may be a bit more surgical:

Code: Select all

su -c 'rm /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.us.debian.org_debian_dists_wheezy_contrib_binary-i386_Packages'


then try updating. If that does not work, try the first command--it will just take longer to download the complete set of files in /lists.

Edit: fixed typo in commands.
