    apt-get update doesn't fix it.

    Re: Update error

    Hungry Man; Hi !

    The package manager advises you that there are duplicated source entries .....so;
    check the file "/etc/apt/sources.list" for duplicated lines...then->
    Check the files in the 3rd party directory "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/" for any files duplicated; as well as a repeat of any line in any of those files from the primary source file "/etc/apt/sources.list" file.

    Re: Update error

    Is there some way to check for duplicates? There's quite a large number of entries that are very similar.

    Re: Update error

    Hungry Man; Hey,

    Unfortunately I do not know of an easy way to search the duplicated entries.
    What I generally do is load the file into the file editor "gedit" ... open up all the files in separate tabs and one line at a time enter a portion of the line into "search for text" field -> hit the "next" button and see if it finds a next. Do this for every entry enabled ...Yeah time consuming ... I just do not know of a better advisement that is as certain to find the duplicates.

    Others with greater experience may advise better methods ...this is ubuntu and there are excellent file manipulation tools, one has just to be aware of them.


    short on skills

    Re: Update error

    Hungry Man; What I see:The 3rd line in the first stanza:
    # deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 13.04 _Raring Ringtail_ - Release amd64 (20130424)]/ raring main restricted
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring main restricted
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-updates main restricted
    as a repeat of the 1st line in this stanza:
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-security main restricted
    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-security main restricted
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-security universe
    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-security universe
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-security multiverse
    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu raring-security multiverse
    I suggest removing the first instance (3rd line) and running:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    once more and see what results.

    Re: Update error

    @ gautam_chand; Hi ! Welcome to the forum.
    Though your problem is similar .. it is not the of the same cause. You should have opened up your own thread -try'n to keep the forum tidy.
    However, try this:
    Terminal codes:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    The "apt-get" command will repopulate the data base that was removed. -> advise us of what results.

    ubuntu, always fixable
