    Unhappy apt-get update problem

    If I run "apt-get update" command in terminal, the update process works well at starting time but end of the process the following errors happened.

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    How can I solve this problem. The domain name is wrong here, It's opensuse.org but here it's shown opwnsuse.org. Is there anyway to make correction on this domain name? and in which directory all these urls are been saved??

    You need to answer the first question asked: Are you using Ubuntu or OpenSUSE?

    Re: apt-get update problem

    I may not know much about anything but I keep seeing "No address associated with hostname" as you do. It seems to me that installing that package from Opensuse has put a link in your software sources list to an Opensuse repository that is broken by a typing error at the Opensuse end of things. Uninstall that package and may be the sources list will be cleaned up.

    Are you still able to update the sources list and run apt-get upgrade? Do you get failures at that stage of things?

    /etc/apt/

    Regards.
