Turns out the google-earth message is just a warning, not an error

You'll have to delete the corrupted cache. A successful apt-update will rebuild it. So run

Code: Select all

sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo apt update
To get rid of the annoying google-earth warning use Thunar to navigate to /etc/apt/ and Right-Click -> Edit as Root on sources.list
In the google-earth line, between the deb and https:// insert [arch=amd64] (yes, the brackets are to be typed).
Save the file and the next sudo apt-update the warning will be gone.

My thanks to you both. I shadowed some of this and got no errors, then got 4 updates.

They applied fine, I reckon I might be OK booting up in the am. Sure hope so because I'm not sure what I'll do if there is a problem! <eek>

Glad it turned out ok so far. Nice!
