The package information is up to date.

The package information was last updated 84 days ago.Should this concern me, and how do I remedy it? Some updates do install regularly, but I do not understand what 84 day old package information Update Manager is referencing.

When in Update Manager I try to check for new updates it tells me:


Failed to download repository information

Check your Internet connection.

sudo apt-get clean

I rebooted and logged into X/Gnome, you didn't mean bring up a terminal before logging into X, right? If you did please tell me what the key is to do so.

Those PPAs do not have a repository for Maverick

See Here (http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/2.0/ubuntu/dists/)
and Here (http://ppa.launchpad.net/nvidia-vdpau/ppa/ubuntu/dists/)

so remove them from your sources.list.

Or they might be located in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory.

Open Software Sources and un-tick them as a source.

Good Luck

Good, please mark the thread 'solved'.

My bad, actually looked for that option earlier but must have missed it.
