Error updating "some index files failed to download"

Postby rijnsma » 15 May 2013 13:35

I like to copy the right /etc/apt/sources.list/ from here please. (If the original one has changed.)

On refresh Synaptics or Update manager there are index/package-files which can't be downloaded.
Failed to fetch http://packages.solydxk.nl/dists/debian ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
it says.

Old list is used then the system says, but I can't figure out why this occurs? :)

Thanks zerozero. Here it is:

Inxi -Sr

Output:
System: Host rr-desktop Kernel 3.2.0-4-486 i686 (32 bit) Distro SolydXK 1 debian
Repos: Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://packages.solydxk.nl/ debian main
deb http://debian.solydxk.nl/security testing/updates main contrib non-free

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Output:

deb http://packages.solydxk.nl/ debian main
deb http://debian.solydxk.nl/security testing/updates main contrib non-free


And after refresh in Synaptics or with the update-manager:

Failed to fetch http://packages.solydxk.nl/dists/debian ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
