    Hey, works fine. Thx a lot.
    Para hispano parlantes.
    Descargarlo, descomprimirlo y abrir un terminal en la carpeta donde se hizo.
    Luego escribir sudo ./launchpad-update intrepid (o hardy o jaunty, según proceda)
    Esperar a que termine y ya está.
    Fantástico trabajo. Gracias a todos.

    Blackgr, thanks for the reply. I have hardy. I tried substituting the command with hardy but it didn't work. I notice a modification in the posts following for hardy and will use that.

    A minor correction to your script:

    * Original:

    wget -q --no-check-certificate `wget -q --no-check-certificate https://launchpad.net/~$i/+archive -O- | grep "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pks/" | cut -d'"' -f2 ` -O- | grep "pub " | cut -d'"' -f2 >> keyss

    * Modified:

    wget -q --no-check-certificate `wget -q --no-check-certificate https://launchpad.net/~$i/+archive/ppa -O- | grep "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pks/" | cut -d'"' -f2 ` -O- | grep "pub " | cut -d'"' -f2 >> keyss

    Only this way your script worked on my Ubuntu Hardy installation.

    JFYI.

    Regards,

    Danpos.
    You guys are way over my head in your grasp of Ubuntu. I also have hardy. One problem I have with this great advice is I don't know the conventions for reading command lines. In the above series I don't know if the replacement script should be typed exactly as written or if the quotation marks and arrows (>>) mean something else.

    Re: Update error

    One more question, what does the straight vertical line mean in the script? I don't have that on my keyboard. Does it separate commands? As you can see I am just a beginner so any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Update error

    I came across this message, when I tried to update. I am not sure when and how this started, but need urgent help.
