    Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    Hi,
    I'm facing a very annoying problem while trying to update my Ubuntu 12.04 for last 20 days. When I'm clicking the Check button in the Update Manager window, it starts to fetch the new update information but after almost 1 minute a new dialogue box is opens and says that
    Code:
    Failed to download repository information
    
    Check your Internet connection.
    
    
    W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/https/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/https/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Important point is that, my Internet connection is perfectly OK. I can do browse and anything else.

    I don't understand why this is happening and how can I solve this. Please anyone help me. Thanks in advance.

    Hi uzumakifahim.

    It looks like there's a problem with the source files.

    Could you post the result of this command?
    Code:
    find /etc/apt  -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;
    Regards.

    You have a https ppa, but the ppa itself does not exist.

    Deleting it should fix the errors.
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/https-ppa-precise.list
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    The first file on your list does not exist, but libcups2_1.5.3-0ubuntu4_i386.deb does.

    In the terminal, do

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    Thanks for your reply, but I don't understand what do you mean by "The first file on your list". Could you please clarify? I'll run the commands and post the updates here. Thanks again.

    Re: Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    I have ran
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    . It was successful, but still my update manager showing that "package information was last updated 27 days ago". No matter how many times I've clicked check button to update the information, the message is in there. Moreover, a new notification icon ( red exclamation sign) is now on the top panel, just beside the clock. I don't know what is happening. Please anyone help me to solve this problem.

    Thanks.

    Re: Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    When I'm clicking on the check button, after a few seconds it' showing the following
    Code:
    W:Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-updates_restricted_binary-i386_Packages  Hash Sum mismatch
    , W:Failed to fetch copy:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-updates_restricted_i18n_Translation-en  Encountered a section with no Package: header
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I can't solve this problem. Please anyone help me.
