    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    I suspect that the Gutsy repositories have been removed and are no longer available. The last updates I saw for Gutsy were posted maybe a week to 10 days before Jaunty was released. I have two Gutsy machines and tried to get everything I wanted installed and updated before the repositories disappeared.

    And what should we do? Same problem. Gutsy.
    Installing/Updating manually is like hell.
    Wipe OS and install 9.04 ? NO WAI!!!

    Thumbs down Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    I have the same problem. I can't seem to update my repositories. I am running Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.

    I have looked at other threads and then mention a problem with proxy servers, but I don't have a /etc/apt/apt.conf file. I do have a /etc/apt/apt.conf.d directory though.

    From the error message below, I think the servers no longer exist?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Error message when I try to update or change repository servers via GUI:

    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    Hello,

    I had exactly the same problem with ubuntu gutsy 7.10. I wanted to install a new package from synaptic, and always I was not able to do so.

    I had install gutsy since it was out and I had never tried to do (almost) any update.

    In the control panel (the menu bar) I always had an orange mark witch prompted me to update my system. I went there, and I tried to update my system. Yet, the error that it could not fetch the requested packages, popped up.

    The errors I faced in general were: either the title of the thread or the fact that it could not fetch the requested packages.

    So I decided, while hitting the same icon, to update my system to hardy heron 8.04.3 (this was the latest one). It was easy to do so, because I had that option available. The update went ok and I have not faced any problem since.

    Regards!

    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    I have a similar problem when updating my system

    System could not download all repository indexes

    and then the detailed info:

    Failed to fetch ftp://ftp.mysql.com/pub/mysql/downlo...source/Sources Unable to fetch file, server said 'Failed to open file. '
    Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    How to fix this?

    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    For peachtree 195 (Atlanta???) If you're not using mysql workbench, you can comment out the entry in your sources.list file. (here are the steps for newbies or my grandmother.)
    1. open a terminal
    Applications/Accessories/Terminal

    2. open a text editor
    usrnam@urcomputr:~$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    3.Using the search function in gedit find mysql workbench.

    4. Comment out the binary and the source entries with a "#" sign at the beginning of each entry.

    5. Save the file. Close gedit and update your repos.
    usrnam@urcomputr:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    let everyone know if this works.

    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    Anybody figured this out yet? The last reply isn't of much use. I'm using "Main Server" and I tried to switch to a local server, but still same issue. Getting 404 file not found whenever I try to update or download some software

    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    Ok, I did some research. Change your /etc/apt/sources.lst file's all http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ (including the ones in #).

    This should work
