    I made a mistake by removing unchecked items in software sources

    Hello all ...

    I recently upgraded this computer from 10.04 to 12.04

    and I noticed a lot of unchecked items in the software sources ...

    I thought I was "cleaning up" my pc ...

    NOW ... I do not receive updates.

    and that's not good !

    I kept anything that was checked ... so I don't know what I did wrong ?

    Try removing the sources completely (with the remove button) and adding them again the same way you did at first.

    If that doesn't work, there is probably a problem with the PPA itself, and you should just remove it until the problem is fixed.

    You didn't do anything wrong. Akirad has not been updated for 12o4; actually it hasn't been updated for 136 weeks. Remove it

    I tried your suggestion ... still broke.

    Re: I made a mistake by removing unchecked items in software sources

    Let me state for clarity ... what I removed was unchecked items in the "other software" section of software sources ... just like my uploaded image shows 6 items in a list and the middle 2 are unchecked. ( I assumed unused and I removed them )

    Ok ... after I did this I tried and update and did come up with a "recommended update" ... so MAYBE I am getting updates .

    Ok ... did some testing ... I am getting updates ...

    I thought I knew about ubuntu ...

    thanks for the help !

    ( I seem to have removed the error message by unchecking items in the "other software" list but not deleting those items )
