Reading package lists... Done
N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386'
W: The repository 'http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu sonya Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dis...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.152 80]
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I am concerned with the mention of "potentially dangerous to use". Please help me solve this problem.

Thanks in advance

The package manager is having trouble with the mirror, and so it can't find the release file. Try again in a half hour.

That link has simply stopped working no matter when I check back.
How can it be deleted? and is it crucial to have contacted?

Thanka heaps ��

AwesomeMachine 02-19-2018 05:47 PM

Look in /etc/apt/sources.list and delete the affected mirror.

I just went into Update Manager/ Edit/ Software sources / PPAs and unchecked all the deb URLs and it did the trick.
Thanks for all the replies. This forum is still the only one where I get real help and responses. Good onya mate!
