Problem with apt
 
Hi. I recently upgraded from 64-bit breezy to 64-bit dapper. Loving it so far, except for one problem - apt and Synaptic are being a bitch.

Here's the output I get from sudo apt-get update:

Code:

Reading package lists...

Synaptic mostly works, except I get the following error when I click "Reload":

Code:

Could not download all repository indexes The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.

http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/dapper/restricted/binary-amd64/Packages.bz2: Sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)

Can anyone help? This is REALLY starting to annoy me - I can't even install the nVidia drivers!:cry:

I'm behind a University proxy, if that makes any difference, but I think I've set it up correctly. It's a HTTP proxy with authentication. Web browsing works, and I can use apt/synaptic sometimes (for some repositories), so it's not a problem with internet access.

Here's my sources.list, if that helps:

Code:

Here is my repos list you can have one created at the following address.

http://www.ubuntulinux.nl/source-o-matic

If you use my repos list you will need to import some keys with the following commands.

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv KEY
gpg --export --armor KEY | sudo apt-key add -

As for the proxy settings. You will need to configure those. Never really had to deal with a proxy server regarding apt-get.

The problem is just with gb.archive. Comment out this source and just use the standard ones provided since they also have the resticted modules there.

THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!!

The source-o-matic solved my problem completely, and I see some useful new repos in brianthegreat's post that I might use - thanks. (Yeah, I'm a bit of a n00b).

I knew I could count on LQ to help me out. You're both legends!:D :D :D :D :D :cool:
