If you are running Debian, you need to change "lucid" to either "jessie" or "wheezy" in your /etc/apt/sources.list file. http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian/dists/

"lucid" is an Ubuntu release. There isn't a package for lucid: http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu/dists/

Hi...

In line with what norobro wrote above, the correct address for Jessie would be...

http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian/d...86/Packages.gz

Regards...

Code:
apt-get -f (or maybe --fix-broken?)
please read
Code:
man apt-get
