    Code:

    Remove all those from your sources.list then run the update again.

    Re: Problems with update in terminal mode

    I recommend that beginners use the nano editor which comes with Ubuntu by default. Open a terminal, then type "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list". You'll see a menu of commands at the bottom of the screen, all of which are "control-key" combinations where you hold down the Ctrl key (represented as "^") and type a letter. To delete a line use Ctrl-K. Use ^S^X to save the file and exit when you are done.

    I have one annoyance with nano: ^K deletes the entire line rather than the text from the cursor to the end of the line as is common in other editors like Emacs and jed. (I use the latter in Emacs mode, but you need to have memorized a lot of control-key sequences to be proficient.) For beginners, nano is the best choice because it has menus and decent help.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Many thanks to SeijiSensi, and plucky for all your help in this matter. However, [upon removing the mentioned sources] I now am getting the following:

    Re: Problems with update in terminal mode

    Similar issue.

    All the sources must be to your current version. [distro] then is supposed to be your current version. But I would comment out all four lines. # as first character converts to comment.

    Why a ppa for Thunderbird. Ubuntu currently updates to the new version almost as soon as released now.

    If the string "[distro]" really appears in the entries in sources.list, it needs to be replaced with the actual name of the distro, "quantal" in your case.

    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/thunderbird-stable/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found
    There's no need to include support for the source code repos unless you intend to recompile the applications yourself. Either delete them, or put a hash mark ("#") at the beginning of the line to disable them. However you should just delete this one because....

    Code:
    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/thunderbird-stable/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    If you try opening that URL with a web browser, you'll see that it fails. In fact, browsing up the tree shows there is nothing in the "dists" directory at all. Just delete this one and use the version of Thunderbird in the standard repos.

    Re: Problems with update in terminal mode

    Thank you, oldfred as well. I just have one last thing. Upon following the advice given here, I still am getting the following:

    Code:
    W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ quantal/partner i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_ubuntu_dists_quantal_partner_binary-i386_Packages)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    and I am not seeing these lines in the /etc/apt/sources.list at all.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Problems with update in terminal mode

    Oh, now I see those lines

    Code:
    # deb http://archive.canonical.com/ [distro] partner
    # deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ [distro] partner
    but they are hashed out. So, should I uncomment them? I am feeling really stupid [concerning Ubuntu and Linux in general] at the moment, and please forgive me missing obvious things.

    Thanks for all your patience and help!!!
