I have lubuntu 13.04 on my Mac G4 MDD and I wont to update to 13.10 but when i start updateing with


sudo do-release-update

I get error:


Error during update

A problem occurred during the update. This is usually some sort of
network problem, please check your network connection and retry.

W:Failed to fetch
http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/saucy/Release Unable to
find expected entry 'partner/binary-powerpc/Packages' in Release file
(Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or
old ones used instead.


Network if fine, and all other things on network work ok.

How to fix this? I am not so eager to spend hours in downloading and burning another DVD for ISO image of Lubuntu :)

Thanks

It says there is a malformed line in your sources.list file. Can you please post the output to
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Thanks, you may need to comment out the partner repo (down the list) as I could not get to it either.
Then run an update/upgrade again.

Do you know how to do this or do you need detailed steps ?
