    I get errors on sources with apt-get update

    Hi,

    I don't know why, but I got these erreors on sources when I updated them :

    Code:
    Err http://ppa.launchpad.net precise/main Sources
      404  Not Found
    Err http://ppa.launchpad.net precise/main amd64 Packages
      404  Not Found
    Err http://ppa.launchpad.net precise/main i386 Packages
      404  Not Found
    What happened ? I didn't do any modifications to sources.list.

    Thans in advance.

    Unless I'm missing it, I don't see "Precise" in the index for http://ppa.launchpad.net/ right now.

    Might be taken down for updates or removed. Give it a few hours and see what's up later.

    Nope, no upgrade recently.

    I didn't see precise in the index too, this is weird no ?

    So I'll wait and see.

    Re: I get errors on sources with apt-get update

    If you want to, you could temporarily disable these repositories so you can update the other parts of your system. You can do that by using this command:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    When the editor opens, place a '#' in front of the repositories that won't download.
    Hope it helps.
