New install from DVD.

apt-get update returns 'Failed to fetch http://linuxmce.com/ubuntu/./Packages.gz  404 Not Found' (among lots of other things).

Is there a problem with this sources.list entry?

You should not be using apt-get update, and generally be Very careful around apt-get on LMCE 0710. The GUI version (Adept, etc) were disabled for a reason. There are lots of critical dependencies on the specific release versions of various LMCE modules/packages, updating them will irreparably damage your system. Please don't go hacking around until you understand the consequences of some of these steps! There really should be any need to do an update....

I don't quite get that. This is standard (Kubuntu, etc.) maintenance.

Your right of course... but LinuxMCE-0710 is a complex beast and can easily get broken by standard Kubuntu system updates carried out via the system update daemon... so they have been disabled. It is safe to use apt-get update and apt-get install "package name". You should avoid adding back any of the standard Kubuntu repos in the sources.list though as you could over ride packages and then cause breakages. Adding repos for other specific software like 'SqueezeCenter' is fine though as they just pull in the specific package they install.

All the best

Andrew, or someone else,

A related question, is it OK to add repos to a MD or use Adept on an MD?

Thanks,
Jason

I get that. I really do. [Been there, done that.] kernel updates being rather different beasties than adding kdebase.

Back to the original question: Is there a problem with this sources.list entry?

Is http://linuxmce.com/ubuntu/./Packages.gz broken or down?

i.e. Do I wait for the site to come back up, or just comment out those entries in sources.list.

The latter begging the question as to why it's present (post-install)?

It is a host entry that is no longer apropos. Just delete it.

Thanks.

Could you please initiate the change so the sources (default sources.list) no longer includes those lines?

The apt repositories have all stopped carrying gutsy. Obsolete releases get moved to old-releases.ubuntu.com. Edit the /etc/apt/sources.list:

Code: [Select]
deb file:/usr/pluto/deb-cache/ ./
#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ gutsy  main restricted multiverse universe
#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ gutsy-security  main restricted multiverse universe
#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ gutsy-updates  main restricted multiverse universe

And you may need to run "apt-get update" to resynchronize the package index files from the sources (no software will be updated or installed with that command).
