    Could not download all repository indexes

    Help!

    I'm getting this message when trying to reload the packages in Synaptic. Can anyone tell me how to resolve this?

    Could not download all repository indexes

    The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.

    http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/di.../Packages.bz2: Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_edgy-security_universe_binary-i386_Packages - open (2 No such file or directory)
    http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/di.../Packages.bz2: Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/security.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_edgy-security_main_binary-i386_Packages - open (2 No such file or directory)


    then.. this error is raised after dismissing the above.


    An error occured

    The following details are provided:

    Can you post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file?

    Well, I don't see an exact duplicate. What should I remove, and how did this get here in the first place?

    the third ¨edgy-security¨ entry have ¨main¨ after universe. That`s what is probably giving the problems there.
    "Some people says that if you run a Microsoft Midori iso backwards you will hear demon voices commanding you to worship Satan". But that's nothing. If you run it forward it will install Microsoft Midori.

    I was thinking the same thing about two mains, but if it's working, don't worry about it.

    Hi, sorry for the delay, but can go to the terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and post the output of the command
    Code:
    head -38 /etc/apt/sources.list | tail -1
    What this code does is it tells the system to output the first 38 lines of the file, but only show you the last 1 line (the 38th line, the one with the problem)
