Update Manager not working in Linux Mint 16
 
Hello, just starting this. I'm using Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon, for about 4 days now. Can't get the update manager to work. It says Error in checkAPT.py, could not refresh the list of packages

fuorviato 02-13-2014 12:21 PM

The solution can be easily googled.

bumi 02-13-2014 02:21 PM

Yes

Did the solution I gave you solve your problem?

bumi 02-13-2014 08:52 PM

Not the ones on top. I'm trying to figure which is "the offending file". I'm new to linux, about 4 days, so it's all a bit confusing for me..... I have tried a few things and none of them have worked so far. I'm at the bottom of that page now, trying to find out which file it is....

fuorviato 02-14-2014 12:39 PM

The file should be
Quote:

checkAPT.py
. It's a python file. For safety, don't remove it but just move it somewhere else then relaunch update manager.

Does your system have "locate" command? If not, install it and issue:

Quote:

sudo updatedb && locate checkAPT.py
. The output tell you the file location

bumi 02-16-2014 12:26 PM

I went ahead and moved the checkAPT.py file to another folder. The updater now has a green check instead of a red X, but I don't know if it's actually working. If you open the update manager and try to reload the cache, you get the same error as before. I guess I'll give it a few days and see if it does anything.

bumi 02-16-2014 10:03 PM

OK, actually if you try to update with the terminal, you still get the error. It does, however, have a green check instead of a red X, whatever that is worth.

Yep.

You can use sudo comand instead of gksu.

1. Type this
Quote:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and hit enter.
2. Enter your user password
3. Replace the content of the opened file with the one I pasted for you
4. Save the file
5. Do
Quote:

sudo apt-get update
6. Launch the update manager and check if the error persists

You've made a typo. It's gedit not getit.

You're the man, thank you so much! Anyway, I think it's working, although it doesn't show anything in the update manager. Maybe it's all up to date, I don't know. What about that checkAPT.py file that I moved? Should I put it back?

Attach your sources.list here so I can look how it's like now Don't paste it, use the attachment function.
Anyway, your package manager is at least now trying to refresh packages from the server. Which is good.

bumi 02-19-2014 08:18 AM

When I try to upload sources.list it says "invalid file", so I guess I have to paste it.

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ saucy partner

What about that checkAPT.py file that's no longer in there? Could that be a problem?

bumi 02-19-2014 08:31 AM

The bottom one with the # was unchecked in the manager, so I went into that and checked it and then reloaded updates but it still has the latest error. sources.list now looks like this

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main restricted universe multiverse

Don't worry about the last entry - it's just another 3rd repository for games.
What you could do is this:

sudo su

cd /var/lib/apt/lists

rm *

cd ..

sudo apt-get update

What about reinstalling the updater?

fuorviato 02-19-2014 11:13 AM

Nope. It's a core component as such reinstalling it it's the last resort.
Repeat the steps I've given you before but instead of doing
Quote:

rm *
do rm -rf *
This will get rif of the directories as well.
Then issue: sudo apt-get update again.

You have duplicated entries. There should be only the ~amd64 ones. This is causing the problem and can corrupt your system in the long run.
Go to that dir

/var/lib/apt/lists/
, once again and rm -rf * everything so it is empty, then update again.
After rm, launch

ls /var/lib/apt/lists/
to make sure it's been cleared.

OK. I've found something. In mint /etc/sources/list isn't necessary (Sorry, I use to use Ubuntu which Mint is based on)
So, remove sources.list and try to update again.

bumi 02-19-2014 12:36 PM

OK, so this time we remove the contents of sources.list and don't replace it with anything?

bumi 02-19-2014 12:42 PM

OK, that's what I did and there is no error! What about that checkAPT.py file? Should I just leave it out?

fuorviato 02-19-2014 12:48 PM

Move it back where it was. Now that we know the root of the problem, we can't take for granted it was involved.
If you have no other problems, mark your thread as [SOLVED] please.

bumi 02-19-2014 12:55 PM

Thanks again, I really appreciate your help.
