    Re: Repository fails to update with 404 Error.

    I usually tick all the boxes. If you tick all the boxes, and have the main server enabled (as in your screenshot), do you see any errors when you run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    ?

    Still when I run Update Manager I get the error

    Could not initialize the package information

    An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

    Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

    'E:Opening /etc/apt/sources.list - ifstream::ifstream (13: Permission denied), E:The list of sources could not be read.'

    Looks like your user is missing the 'sudo' group. Are there other users on this system that have sudo privileges?
