    thats a lot of broken PPAs. Is there a way to auto fix them all?

    If possible can you reinstall your OS?

    Run the following in terminal,

    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 437D05B5
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DA6DEEAA
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0FF405B2
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 7FAC5991
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0C5A2783
    sudo apt-get update

    And after adding the keys, please post the output of following command if the errors are still there.

    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    For Launchpad PPAs, go to Software Sources > Other Software Tab and disable them. 404 error means server not found and those PPAs might not be maintained any longer or the server might be down. Maintaining a PPA is often up to a single person so those problems seem to happen with them.

    Re: update manager broken, won't update anything

    Hint from http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads :

    What to do when experiencing The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG ... when refreshing the packages from the repository?
    Code:
    # sudo -s -H
    # apt-get clean
    # rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*
    # rm /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/*
    # apt-get clean
    # apt-get update
    Worked for me. I think a while back when GetDeb went down the Launchpad PPA keys changed, so unless you clear and clean the old keys it will screw up updating even if you use the new keys.

    Re: update manager broken, won't update anything

    I got scared when i read this
    Code:
    If possible can you reinstall your OS?
    but then i scrolled down and was relieved lol.

    when i ran:
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 437D05B5
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DA6DEEAA
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0FF405B2
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 7FAC5991
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0C5A2783
    sudo apt-get update
    I got back this during the apt-get update phase:

    No need to re-install definitely here

    Edit your sources.list by

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Comment these 2 lines with #. They are just at the end of your file.

    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
    So that they look like,

    Code:
    #deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
    #deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu karmic main
    Save and close that file and try apt-get update again.

    Good Luck!

    thanks sikander3786. I did your suggestion just instead I did i by unchecking them in the software source GUI. Same thing I figured. And it worked! Thanks, I'm up and updating again.

    You are Welcome. Yes you can do it from Software Sources also. In fact I mentioned that in my above post

    Glad to know it is all sorted now.

    You can mark this thread Solved using Thread Tools near the top of this page.

    Happy Ubuntu-ing!
