View Full Version : [ubuntu] Error upgrading intel graphics driver

Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.4.1-1ubuntu10.1_i386.deb

I am trying to update the graphics driver for the intel graphics card on my Aspire one and it is trying to download a package that doesn't exist. I do have an internet connection and I went on the site to manually download it and it simply wasn't on the list of files. Any Ideas?

A package does exist at http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.4.1-1ubuntu10.3_i386.deb. It looks like they just changed the version build. Try running:

sudo apt-get update

Then try to install the package again.

Also, why are you trying to do this? Ubuntu updates should take care of this for you...

Thanks, it worked. The updater was actually what was throwing this error.

I had the issue that I was able to upgrade but afterwards the X-Server was crippled.

To get back to the old version of the driver
download http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.4.1-1ubuntu10_i386.deb

and "dpkg -i xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.4.1-1ubuntu10_i386.deb"

BTW: the non-working version is
