    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    I am having the same problem. I also have access to the internet but I am running the Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 on Sun's Virtual Box. I have no idea what the problem is. I am not new to Ubuntu but is not an OS that I use all the time and I would like to learn more but it's difficult since is not as intuitive as Windows 7.

    Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    I've been getting the following today when I try to check for updates:

    Could not download all repository indexes

    The repository may no longer be 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 ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

    Lightbulb Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    Hi All the problem that you encounter is so easy to solve and it happens because of some users unmanaged action like playing with system things that he don't know what is it .
    And the Way to solve it :
    1- go to System=>Administration=>Software Sources
    2-Uncheck the (Installable From CD-Rom/DVD) its like (Cdrom with Ubuntu 10.04 'Lucid Lynx) uncheck it remove it from using and chuck (apply) Source Code and all above it or Make your choices as like as this photo and make the download from : (Main Server)
    Screenshot.png
    3-Close the Software Sources and you can Use YOUR updates now try typing (Sudo apt-get update) and see thats the problem has been solved .

    And thats all .
    And remember to don't miss with system things you don't know what you will change.
    And for further help ask me on my Email: TGAKO.SOT@Gmail.com

    Angry Re: Could not download all repository indexes

    hai

    help!
    I'm using ubuntu 10.04
    I get this message
    "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."

    when type in terminal sudo apt-get update

    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    I guess this is happen because of a network problem(not sure!)
    I'm using cache.mrt.ac.lk wi-fi network to update.
    i'm not not very confident about network configuration
    i did some configurations but i'm not sure.
    i'm also unable to intall software from "ubuntu software center"

    would you please be kind enough to help for this matter

    thank you.

    No. The command
    Code:
    head -n38 /etc/apt/sources.list | tail -1
    does not fix this error
    could not download all repository indexes
    What it does is print the line at line number 38 in the file /etc/apt/sources.list.

    If there is a problem on line 38 then the above command will display the line.

    sarvan.rb's error was...
    E: Malformed line 38 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse)
    E: The list of sources could not be read.
    Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
    E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
    ...and that is why that command was used; to see what the problem with line 38 actually was.

    I prefer to use sed to do the same thing.

    Take a look at this.
    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/BACKUP % cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list | head  
         1    # deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ maya main upstream import
         2    # deb cdrom:[Xubuntu 12.10 _Quantal Quetzal_ - Release amd64 (20121017.1)]/ saucy main multiverse restricted universe
         3    
         4    # See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
         5    # newer versions of the distribution.
         6    deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main restricted
         7    deb-src http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main restricted
         8    
         9    ## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
        10    ## distribution.
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/BACKUP % sed -n '6p' /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main restricted
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/BACKUP % head -n6 /etc/apt/sources.list | tail -1
    deb http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main restricted
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/BACKUP %
    sed -n '6p' /etc/apt/sources.list prints out the 6th line and so does head -n6 /etc/apt/sources.list | tail -1

    This is a really old thread though so Thread Closed.

    Kind regards
