    Nothing can install

    Just installed 12.04 on a G4 eMac and absolutely nothing will install. When I do sudo apt-get update it says this
    (not sure if I had to copy it all, but did it anyways.)

    johnny@POSapple:~$ sudo apt-get update

    When I try to install something, it says this:

    I am connected to the internet, otherwise I would not be able to post this.

    Try this in terminal:

    sudo apt-get clean
    cd /var/lib/apt
    sudo mv lists lists.old
    sudo mkdir -p lists/partial
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: Nothing can install

    For an alternative, what you'll want to do is delete the sources that are giving you problems:

    sudo ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Locate the sources that are giving you problems, for example you noted:

    http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-dev/...source/Sources

    You can also use apt to rid of them for example:

    sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:The_PPA_Name/ppa

    Also, you might want to open the Update Manager, click settings (bottom left) and check the sources tab.

    Hope this helps!
