    Cannot update

    I get the following error when I try to check for updates, I also have a red triangle with an exclamation point at the top right of my screen by the network and sound icons. I'm posting from the computer in question, so I know my internet connection is fine, I don't know what causes and how to fix the below error. Help?

    Re: Cannot update

    Weird. All those have cononical spelled wrong, should be canonical.

    Do you know how to edit your sources list? In terminal:

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...es/CommandLine

    Post back if not sure about this

    That did it. It appears that repository was one I added when working on installing Skype. I very likely made a typo. I don't usually copy/paste the code from websites, I like to type it myself; brings me back to my DOS days.

    Thanks, I actually posted a bit a couple months ago when I first installed 12.04 LTS on this computer. I had some issues (that all turned out to be improper BIOS settings) and the board was very helpful.

    My latest venture in Linux is trying to learn how to use the MS Kinnect as a webcam for Skype. I can connect to the camera and I get a good signal, and Skype starts and runs fine, but it doesn't get a signal from the webcam. I feel like I'm missing something simple.

    Re: Cannot update

    No webcam here, but should be able to find some help by starting another thread on it.

    I can point you here
