View Full Version : [ubuntu] Error Checking for Updates

November 9th, 2018, 07:24 AM
I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and when I checked for updates, I get the message "Unable to download updates from "extensions.gnome.org": [*/*/*/source/shell-extensions/*] failed to download https://extensions.gnome.org//static/extensions.json: Cannot resolve hostname"

Had you added some GNOME extension that may not have a version for 18.04?

You are getting that message for exactly the reason it sounds like. When the link is clicked, all your get is a 404 - Not Found error. That resource simply does not exist.
