Linux Update not working
 
So it's been a while since I've ran an update on my linux mint system (13, aka Maya), and it says that it "could not download all repository indexes". The copy-and-paste of the details is below. It's kind of jibberish to me (knowing a few basics like scheduling shutdown times at both specific times and in "x" minutes.... and that's really about it).


Failed to fetch http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/precise/Release.gpg Something wicked happened resolving 'packages.medibuntu.org:http' (-5 - No address associated with hostname)

Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.




It's been doing this for a several weeks, and my question is: Is it safe for me to download and install the index files (updates?) that it can get? Or is it going to cause problems?

Thanks,
Matt

"No address associated with hostname" => DNS problem, could be local to you, could be everyone
Google "packages.medibuntu.org" => it's everyone: Medibuntu has been shut down

More from Google: http://askubuntu.com/a/357000

So remove all traces of medibuntu as in the previous link.

> Is it safe for me to download and install the index files (updates?) that it can get?

Yes.

Thanks! I removed medibuntu, and the computer works fine (as I'm on the computer at the moment)

The Mediabuntu servers were all shut down late last year- leaving them in won't hurt, but taking them out is easy enough.
