Code: Select all

mepis.mirrorcatalogs.com/
is down - probably permanently. I have a mirror set up at

Code: Select all

it.mxrepo.com/mepis
to replace it in your sources.list

@eemaestro,

As Tim said, the mepis.mirrorcatalogs.com mirror is down, you can fix that with what he posted here: http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtop ... 12#p378512

But I think you've also created some entries for repos that never have existed, for instance
If you need help fixing your sources.list, post it (and sources.list.d files -- if you have any) or the output of inxi -r.

I tried to incorporate change from Tim's post #378512 but must have done something
wrong, because I got this:

Code: Select all

# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
E: Type 'nl.mxrepo.com/mepis' is not known on line 23 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

Code: Select all

Add the "deb" to it, and I think you'll also need to add a "http://" to the url:
deb http://nl.mxrepo.com/mepis mepis-12.0 main

I obviously don't know the syntax for this deb stuff.
Thank you, kmathern, for pointing out my goof. I fixed it. apt-get
update && upgrade just updated many, many binary libraries.

This will likely only affect a handful of users, but I temporarily ran out of room on the nl.mxrepo.com server. To expedite things, I moved the old MEPIS repository archives over to:

Code: Select all

deb http://it.mxrepo.com/mepis mepis-11.0 main
and

Code: Select all

deb http://it.mxrepo.com/mepis mepis-12.0 main
where I had tons more room available.
Sorry for any inconvenience for those still running MEPIS 11 & 12.

MX-14 didn't use Warren's MEPIS repo. It's Warren's (abandoned) repos that I moved.
