    Question apt-get problems help please?

    I looked around I can't find anything to help me solve this problem I have with apt-get.

    When I try to install a package, let's just use wine as an example I get this:
    jts@jts-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install wine
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    jikes libsablevm-native1 jikes-sablevm libsablevm-classlib1-java
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    Suggested packages:
    msttcorefonts xdg-utils
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    wine
    0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Need to get 9807kB of archives.
    After unpacking, 45.5MB of additional disk space will be used.
    WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!

    So then I obviously try to update and get this:

    Try removing or commenting the last 2 lines in the sources list


    #deb http://apt.cerkinfo.be/ unstable main contrib
    #deb-src http://apt.cerkinfo.be/ unstable main contrib

    Re: apt-get problems help please?

    In your web browser go to http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/
    You'll see that the directory "feisty" is missing.

    The file apt-get is looking for resides some place like here:

    Code:
    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/feisty/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz
    But it does not exist. Note for gutsy the equivalent file does exist:

    Code:
    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/gutsy/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz
    I think the solution is to go to System>Software Sources and select a different server.
