View Full Version : [ubuntu] Repository error messages when upgrading to Firefox 4

May 30th, 2011, 06:38 PM
I'm running Joli OS 1.2 and have just tried to upgrade Firefox from 3.6 to 4. The first of the three commands I was trying to use threw up the errors shown below (not sure if these are connected to me using Python a few days ago, as shown in LXF magazine):

matthew@matthew-jolicloud:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
