Installation of backup software luckybackup fails in ubuntu 10.10 notebook edition


Hi:


I am trying to install luckybackup on my ubuntu 10.10 notebook edition. But everytime I get the message box:

Requires installation of untrusted packages

The action would require the installation of packages from unauthenticated sources.
I press OK, and it fails.
I have repeated this a few times, it afails everytime.

I read a post where one guy said that he fixed this problem by updating his software sources. This is how I would go about doing that.

1. Open the "Ubuntu Software Center."
2. From the file menu click the "Edit" menu and then select Software Sources.
3. Make sure that everything on the "Ubuntu Software" tab has a check mark next to it. (Note: if the CD rom is not checked, then the source code won't check either.)
4. Make sure that everything on the "Other Software" tab is checked.
5. Next click close.

After doing this, two rotating green arrows should show up in the "Ubuntu Software Center" indicating that your software sources are updating. When that is finished, try installing the package again.

I see the two green arrows and download happening, but I also get a message box:

Failed to download repository information
check your internet connection.


And I did, but there is nothing wrong with my internet connection.
I am puzzled. Makes no sense.

OK, I was able to see it after I did a search.
sudo aptitude search luckybackup
and then install it by
sudo apt-get install luckybackup

I have it now.
Thank you for your help.
