    Question The package information was last updated 84 days ago?

    The package information is up to date.

    The package information was last updated 84 days ago.
    Should this concern me, and how do I remedy it? Some updates do install regularly, but I do not understand what 84 day old package information Update Manager is referencing.

    When in Update Manager I try to check for new updates it tells me:

    Failed to download repository information

    Check your Internet connection.

    W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/zentyal/2.0...86/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
    , W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/nvidia-vdpa...86/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
    , E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    If upon reading this you know the solution, please make me aware of it and any complete commands I need to enter into terminal if necessary.

    Try booting the machine and run

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    I rebooted and logged into X/Gnome, you didn't mean bring up a terminal before logging into X, right? If you did please tell me what the key is to do so.

    Those PPAs do not have a repository for Maverick

    See Here
    and Here

    so remove them from your sources.list.

    Or they might be located in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory.

    Open Software Sources and un-tick them as a source.

    Good Luck

    My bad, actually looked for that option earlier but must have missed it.
