    [ubuntu] Red Triangle -- "The update information is outdated"

    Hello,

    I'm running 12.10 64bit. I've recently had a red triangle appear on the top taskbar indicating that I need updates, however, when I click on 'show updates', it says everything is up to date.

    When I run 'sudo apt-get update' I get these error messages:

    Code:
    Err http://ppa.launchpad.net quantal/main Sources                              
      404  Not Found
    Err http://ppa.launchpad.net quantal/main amd64 Packages                       
      404  Not Found
    Err http://ppa.launchpad.net quantal/main i386 Packages                        
      404  Not Found

    I've looked around for similar threads, but nothing seems to come up for these specific errors. Any suggestions? I remember having to do the following to get skype to work on my computer, do you think it could be related?


    In some cases similar problems of other people have turned out to be caused by a mis-configuration of the package management system related to multiarch support.

    Please issue the following commands and copy/paste all output:

    Code:
    dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
    dpkg --print-architecture
    If the first comand does not show any output, and the second one gives "amd64" you shouly try the following commands
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
    sudo apt-get update
    and then again

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install skype

    Thanks for any help!
