    Unhappy Errors from sudu apt-get update

    One, possibly two problems/questions. Can someone tell me what the flatpak errors mean? In the terminal when I do a sudo apt-get update, I get the following string of messages:

    I don't know if these are related or two seperate problems but now if I edit the repositories listed in software & updates (simply either check one or uncheck one of them) and try to close the Software & Updates window, I get a refreshing software cache message that runs a bit and just hangs. It will sit on the system till I reboot. Are these related? When I reboot everything runs normally but the same problems occur if I repeat my actions. I'd like to run sudo apt-get update without any errors and edit repositories without any issues. Any advice on how to proceed is greatly appreciated.

    Re: Errors from sudu apt-get update

    Mixing repos from different releases isn't a good idea. Best case, the system will become a Frankenstein install and dependency problems will happen in a few months. Any repos that don't match your current install, as shown my lsb_release -a, need to be removed.

    The same applies to old PPAs that don't exist anymore or don't have eoan packages. Remove them.

    Then run sudo apt update.

    It is likely this won't have any issues. Then run sudo apt upgrade. I expect there will be some errors, due to the Frankenstein packages installed.

    @TheFu Can you please elaborate. Where do you see different release repo's. Which ones are they?

    Re: Errors from sudu apt-get update

    Any of the URLs above that don't say "canonical.com" or "ubuntu.com" in them are 3rd party repos.
    5 of them are fine.
    All the others are suspect.

    These are Frankenstein repos:
    cosmic? !!!! that shouldn't be in there at all. Same for using debian with Ubuntu installs.

    Re: Errors from sudu apt-get update

    That did it. I removed the Frankenstein repo's and 3rd party repo's. Thanks for the information. I assume removing the repo's from the Software & Updates box under tab "Other Software" is all that is needed to avoid any future problems ...or is there something else I need to do to purge/clean-up my system?

    BTW, why was I getting flatpak errors ...that's the correct repo. isn't it?

    I am too trusting when I install stuff I assume it won't install if it is pointing to the wrong repo's but I guess that is not true.

    It' s the right repo, but
    It hasn't been updated to reflect the new eoan release, so no ppa archive for eoan exists yet.
    Which is fine right now, since the version in the repos is the latest version anyway.
    I'd expect the ppa to add eoan when the package gets any new update upstream.
    You can just disable the ppa for now, and then enable it if and or when you need it later when they update the ppa.

    Re: Errors from sudu apt-get update

    We should only trust software from reputable sources. When we go outside those, we have effectively given root to someone somewhere else in the world who we don't know.

    Sorry, I can't answer the other questions. I do it differently.

    What should you do to keep a system maintained? That is a common question here. Search the forums for community wisdom. I've published a few articles about it, but those were long ago and there are better answers today.
