    Exclamation Lucid-"Warning Symbol": "Package information is Outdated..." Why?

    I have been constantly getting the red "Warning Symbol" that tells me that my "Update information is outdated..." Of course I luse Update Manager and "Sudo Apt-get update/upgrade" in Terminal, but this appears after a bit, everytime I reboot.

    Could this be related to the GetDeb archives being offline (If so, then someone needs to get this fixed; an offline repo is not worthy of a "DANGER WARNING ATTENTION" symbol!

    Could this also be related to this bug?

    Regardless if this is a bug, what package is this related to?

    If a repository is unavailable, it kind of breaks Apt in a way. Disable the Getdeb repos and it should fix it.

    Is this a reported bug?

    Actually, I have the same problem. The warning sign appeared when I update the packages once and the sign is still there. I have restarted my computer several times but it won't disappear. Using the terminal to update the packages the following message appears:

    Code:
    GPG error : http://dl.google.com stable Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2
    also,
    Code:
    Failed to fetch 
    http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/dists/stable/main/binary-i386/Packages.bz2  Sub-process /bin/bzip2 
    returned an error code (2)
    and,
    Code:
    Some index files failed to download,
     they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Could you please tell what what the problem is?

    Many thx

    I have no idea what just happened but I can no longer see the warning sign. So package manager doesn't give any errors atm.
