View Full Version : [ubuntu] Could not resolve pppa.launchpad.net

just ran sudo apt-get update and got this error:
W: Failed to fetch http://pppa.launchpad.net/awn-testing/ubuntu/dists/hardy/Release.gpg Could not resolve 'pppa.launchpad.net'

W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems


I get the same error message when running update manager. I tried Google and searching the forums and I don't see this anywhere. Anyone know how to resolve this?


Also, after running updates that were up to 41 days old, now I get a blank human screen when I log in. No background pic, no task bar, nothing. I've been using "failsafe gnome" to be able to get in and make changes.

Thanks!

Um I'm pretty sure it's ppa.launchpad.net. Remove one of the p's and it should work.

Go to System->Administration->Software Sources. Then go to "Third-Party Software". There you should see an entry like pppa.launchpad.net/fta/ etc... Click on it, and then click edit. And then in the URI field make sure you have: http://ppa.launchpad.net/fta/ubuntu .
