    Cannot install BOINC

    Hello all,


    I try to install BOINC trough synaptic in linux mint 13, which is based on ubuntu 12.04.

    I run both MATE and cinnamon version in virtualboxes. When i try to install BOINC it tells me (French-speaking system):

    W: Échec de la récupération de http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/m ... _amd64.deb
    404 Not Found [IP : 91.189.88.28 80]


    W: Échec de la récupération de http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/m ... 5_i386.deb
    404 Not Found [IP : 91.189.88.28 80]

    A bit of history:

    I installed mint 13 MATE. I installed BOINC. When i clicked on "join a project" it quitted. I found no solution to the problem and wiped the HD to install ubuntu 12.04. I installed BOINC and it works. I want to install mint and BOINC on mint. I tested a mint 13 cinnamon on a virtualbox and tried to install it. Got the error message. Downloaded the installer from the BOINC site but it didn't work out. Tried mint 13 MATE and the installation via synaptic gave the same error message.

    Note taht when i tried MATE first, i had abuggy BOINC installed. Now, with the smae MATE iso it doesn't install the two mentioned files. Does it mean the files were buggy and the repositories are being fixed ?

    Thanks in advance to whoever will take time to answer me. I got zero answers on the mint forums.
