    How to install XBMC on Ubuntu?

    I know that XBMC is available in the Ubuntu Software Center but for the last week or so, I've been trying to install it and getting errors. The errors are listed below. I'm just wondering if there are some official instructions on how to install it manually on Ubuntu as the Software Center doesn't seem to work.

    Thank you

    Hello!

    Which version of Ubuntu are you running?

    OK. Could you try updating again in the terminal? Make the terminal as wide as you can, so the urls are not shortened.

    Highlight the 404s and paste those lines between code tags.

    Sorry, I'm kind of new to this, I know how to open a terminal session, but how do you update in terminal?

    To install XBMC, I have just been opening the Software Center, searching for it and then trying to install it. After a few minutes, it times out with the error in the original post.

    In the terminal, do

    OK, good. What we did was made sure your "catalogue" is up to date.

    Now let's make sure all of your currently installed software is up to date. The following command will not attempt to upgrade you to a new version of Ubuntu. It will attempt to upgrade your installed software.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
