View Full Version : [ubuntu] Security Downloads return 404 Message

Most recently Download Manager notifies me that security downloads are available for my 8.10 system. There are four and they are:

linux headers 2.6.27-11
linux headers 2.6.27-11 generic
linux image 2.6.27-11 generic
linux libc dev

Download Manager then returns four slight variations on the following error message when it tries to download and install the four updates:

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux/linux-libc-dev_2.6.27-11.26_i386.deb
404 Not Found

Now when I boot linux I am greeted by an indication that downloads are available. These turn out to be the same four files and they still will not download and install.

I tried using sudo apt-get upgrade. This returns:

Aparently I do not understand the syntax for "fix missing" so I have not been able to make that work.


I have checked repositories to see if some inadvertant change had been made. These look unaltered from what I remember being there.

If I do cat /etc/apt/sources.list this returns:

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Is there something I should be doing or is this a repository/server issue of some sort?

My thanks for your time and help.

select a different mirror at synaptic (not US)
Thank you binbash. So I do have a server/repository issue?

I have looked at Download Manager and at Synaptic Package Manager and in both cases I do not see where I can specify a mirror or select one from a list.

My problem with the command-line at this point is that I do not know the syntax for doing what you suggest and I do not know what mirrors might be available.

Can I ask for a bit more help?
