    12.04 Update Manager updates are failing

    After looking at *just* the first line of the error messages below, I pointed the web browser to:
    http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gnupg/
    I saw there was no 2.1 version of "gpgv_11.4.11-3ubuntu", only a 2 and a 2.2

    Did the .deb files get deleted from the pool or was there a typing error in the update scripts?

    Re: 12.04 Update Manager updates are failing

    It's unlikely to be a typing error. The various build-and-package systems are automated in order to prevent typos.

    It's much more likely that 2.1 existed, and has been superseded and replaced by 2.2. If so, then your package manager has out-of-date information in /var/lib/apt/lists and needs to be refreshed.

    The command sudo apt-get update will refresh (update) /var/lib/apt/lists, and usually runs automatically when you start Software Center or Update Manager or Synaptic. But you do need to run it manually when you update on the command line.

    The #1 cause of update failures is an out-of-date /var/lib/apt/lists.

    The #2 cause of update failures is interference from a PPA. Disable them and then try updating again.

    Thought #1: I'm using the Update Manager UI to perform these updates. As you pointed out, hitting the "Check" button in the Update Manager window should update the apt lists! If it's not, then the Update Manager UI is broken and needs attention

    Thought #2: PPAs? Do you mean to uncheck the "PPA lines" in the "Other Software" tab of the Update manager settings window? (see below)
