    Re: Failed to fetch

    The 360-chars problem is still not completely fixed - occurs intermittently depending on which mirror you get sent to. but switch.dl should be working fine at least. so as mike said, please post your sources.list.

    Re: Failed to fetch

    Update:
    Sourceforge has fixed the long-header problem, and the repository now works without issues using the downloads.sourceforge.net server.

    I followed the 4 term line steps for automating Firefox updates at http://ubuntuzilla.sourceforge.net/, but it's not working.

    My sources.list file is (so you'll see I've already added mirror per nanotube):

    W: Failed to fetch http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/pro...ts/all/Release Unable to find expected entry main/binary-lpia/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

    W: Failed to fetch http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pro...ia/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that the sudo apt-get install didn't work:
    susan@susan:~$ sudo apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package firefox-mozilla-build
    I thought I'd try the instructions at: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/ubuntuzilla and everything went fine till I asked the Software Sources to reload, at which point I get same error message as in sudo apt-get update step. The Synaptic Package Manager also can't find the mozilla-build.

    Any idea why this isn't working for me? I currently have Firefox for Ubuntu 3.6.17. I think I have Hardy Heron 8.04 for Linux, but don't remember how to figure that out.
    Thanks!

    Re: Failed to fetch

    hi hewittkennedy,

    yes you do appear to have an old ubuntu release, hardy 8.04, and further which is the dell flavor of the lpia architecture.

    There are a number of problems here:
    1. lpia is a separate architecture build, and the packages of ubuntuzilla (or really almost anything else out there) don't support it.
    2. hardy is old, and the apt-get system doesn't support http redirects, which the main downloads.sourceforge.net gateway uses, so you'd have to specific mirror (switch.dl.sourceforge.net is one such mirror - you'll see in your output that that one worked fine - but complained about missing lpia packages)

    my suggestion to you is to do the following:
    1. back up your personal files from this computer
    2. make a fresh install of the latest ubuntu 32bit (or xubuntu - these days i'm a xubuntu fan )
    3. if you wish, follow the steps again to add the ubuntuzilla repository and install the latest mozilla builds, though the latest ubuntu would also come with recent mozilla software.

    all the best!
