View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12.10 update manager fails

December 25th, 2012, 05:40 AM
I tried to check for updates and got the following:
Failed to download repository information

Check your Internet connection.
W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/libv4l/ppa/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
The internet connection is OK

I had the same issue, don't know why but reinstalling fixed it.
If it's just updates just use the command line, the update manager has been nothing but problems as of late (and Xorg has been riddled with bugs..)

At this point I'm spending more time in the command line than I should have to, if I wanted to use the command line I would have stuck with Gentoo/Funtoo...

This PPA has not been updated for 113 weeks, thus no 12.10 release.
