View Full Version : [ubuntu] 16.04 - apt-get update errors

December 19th, 2017, 10:53 AM
Very recent install of 16.04.

When I run apt-get update I get errors:

W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/martinx/ig/ubuntu xenial Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/martinx/ig/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Should I worry and how can I fix them? Thx.

Remove that PPA, since it doesn't exist.
