View Full Version : Cannot Install Updates

September 14th, 2013, 09:00 PM
Whenever I go to the Software Updater, it searches for updates and then says "Failed to repository information."

When I click "Try Again", I get the same. Then, I tried from terminal. Sudo apt-get update and got

Please deselect your ppas and try again.

How do I do that?

You can deselect them from the software sources.

How did you install them ?

September 14th, 2013, 09:21 PM
I just installed them through the software center, (installed Screenlets, but these errors I'm not sure what they are referring to.)

The launchpad ppa and http://www.duinsoft.nl/ are not found. I do not know what the second is :)
You need to untick them from the software sources.
