    Re: Failure to download repository information

    whenever i try to move lists, i get this error:


    keri@Decaulion:/var/lib/apt$ sudo mv lists lists.old
    mv: cannot move `lists' to `lists.old/lists': Directory not empty

    what does that mean? and how can i fix it?

    This also shows up when i go to edit the sources list:


    keri@Decaulion:~$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    [sudo] password for keri:

    (gedit:2213): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.NCG47V': No such file or directory

    (gedit:2213): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory

    Let's see if we can do without, since we are changing the sources.list otherwise we may need to remove it.

    This also shows up when i go to edit the sources list:


    keri@Decaulion:~$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    [sudo] password for keri:

    (gedit:2213): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.NCG47V': No such file or directory

    (gedit:2213): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory
    This just means it will not be possible for the editor to add an entry to the "recent documents" list, since this does not exist for the super user account. It can be ignored for the moment. Just put the hash marks in the cited spots like the other lines with a single hash mark and save the file.
    Then just run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    and see what we get.

    Good luck!

    You need to keep all the package managers closed and then open the file /etc/apt/source.list and copy the contents in a response, so I can see what needs to be changed and let you know.
