problem's with apt-get?


so i keep trying to use apt-get to install things or update/upgrade
and i keep getting errors saying that packages were missing so they werent installed

i added more repositories as per the unofficial ubuntu guide suggested, but i noticed it's for hoary(5.10) , and i'm using breezy (5.10)

my sources.list looks like this
Code:
deb cdrom:[Edubuntu 5.10 _Breezy Badger_ - Release i386 (20051012)]/ breezy main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch updated software from the network
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to fetch major bug fix updates produced
## after the final release of the distribution.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-updates main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-updates main restricted

## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe'
## repository.

## Backports
deb http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/ breezy-backports main universe multiverse restricted
deb http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/ breezy-extras main universe multiverse restricted
and i'm getting this error in terminal when i try sudo apt-get update

Code:
Failed to fetch http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.ne...86/Packages.gz  404 Not Found
Failed to fetch http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.ne...86/Packages.gz  404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
[1]+  Done                    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
i'm still getting some packages to update/install, but it worries me that some aparently arent. any ideas?

make sure you don't have the graphical package manager open. That can really screw up how how apt works from the command line.

The GUI's not so bad.
It's easier to help people with terminal commands, but Synaptic Package Manager is a wonderful thing.
