    unable to update the vm using apt-get update, throwing 403 permission denied error

    Hi All,

    I have 4 Ubuntu 1604 boxes and when i want to install any package it tells , 403 forbidden error.
    we have tried to run below commands
    Code:
    #apt-get clean
    #cd /var/lib/apt
    mv lists lists_old
    mkdir -p lists/partial
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update
    But afte this also we could see the same issue.
    We have removed the file and copied the content from a working vm, but still the same.

    when we try to install any package we get the following error
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list|grep "xenial-updates"
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package walinuxagent is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package 'walinuxagent' has no installation candidate
    root@SMULWEBPM2U001:~# apt-get search walinuxagent

    Thread moved to New to Ubuntu for a better fit.

    That's not a 403 error.
    That is the expected behavior.
    apt-get does not have a 'search' function anymore. Use 'apt search' instead.

    That's not a 403 error.
    Since elinks has been in the Universe repository since before 12.04, check your apt sources to ensure that you have Universe enabled.


    If you are getting a 403 error when running 'apt update', then check your apt sources for a typo or an obsolete repo, or try a different repo.

    thanks for that information
    but again when you try to instal the any packages it shows the same error:

    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
     Building dependency tree
     Reading state information... Done
     Package walinuxagent is not available, but is referred to by another package.
     This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
     is only available from another source
     E: Package 'walinuxagent' has no installation candidate
    Also when you run the apt-get update
    we are getting 403 forbiddedn for some repos
    why is that

    See Post #3 for those answers.

    Please use [code] tags for terminal output, to retain the formatting.

    If you need help checking your list of sources, then show us the complete contents of /etc/apt/sources/list and of /etc/aptsources/list.d/*...in [code] tags, of course.

    Please use code tags - if you are using New Reply button - highlight text and use the # button in the text box header.

    If using Quick Reply then [code] at the beginning and [/code] at the end.
