    Software Updater Error

    I got this error today:
    W:GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net quantal Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY C2518248EEA14886, W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/merlwiz79/c...source/Sources 404 Not Found
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/merlwiz79/c...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/merlwiz79/c...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    After some sleuthing, me thinks it has to do with either the new version of Libre-Office (4.0) which I installed recently (instead of waiting for Updater to do so), or the Mint Cinnamom desktop, which I also added recently to my log in choice for a quick tryout.

    I was planning on UN-installing Cinnamon today anyway. Or how do you guys recommend I proceed?

    Re: Software Updater Error

    And for your 404 error, there is no quantal package.

    'kay, tried the above links and procedures and still get this:

    same error as in first post. Any other suggestions? I already un installed the cinnamon desktop, (apt-get remove cinnamon) and added repository keys for merlwiz79, so what should I do now?

    mayagrafix;

    Let us see what the package manager relates. Post the output of terminal commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    so begins a tale in the telling

    Re: Software Updater Error

    Remove that PPA from Software Sources as there is no repository for Quantal.

    See Here

    Good Luck

    Re: Software Updater Error

    Wonderful! I must be getting the hang of this thing, because after the above suggestion, I knew to go to Ubuntu Software Center, look up Software Sources in the Edit Menu and delete the offending PPA. Who says old dogs can't learn new tricks?

    Thank you so much, Team Canonical!
