View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager problem - Repos missing?

February 18th, 2011, 02:58 AM
This is the error that the update manager kicks out. I am an running a pretty fresh install, hickup free until now using 10.10, Dual Boot with Win 7 (rarely used) and my internet connection is working flawlessly otherwise.

Just remove gdm2setup's PPA from the sources list:
"System -> Administration -> Software Sources -> Other Software"

Then re-add the PPA if you want:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gdm2setup/gdm2setup
sudo apt-get update

Or via the "Software Sources" dialog.

Two? I thought it was only about gdm2setup?

However I it also in my repo list, since shortly after I installed Lucid in ocober last year, and never get an error. Weirdly, that you don't get errors on all the other repos as well, since I suspect a misconfiguration of your router/firewall or generally laggy internet access.

Well two instances of that reo on the other sources list. I have fios ....28 megs down and 15 megs up ... so not my inet. Why is it just now a problem with my router/firewall? These repos have been there since day one of my install

Running 10.10

Which are the two repos then you get errors for?

Do you have a router then, or configured a special firewall?

I get a 404 from the link you provided in the first post. Do you have the proper url ?
