"Could not download all repository indexes" -- What does that mean?
 
Hello All,

I am not an expert in Linux but I'm now using Ubuntu 9.04 but whenever I try to update or press the 'reload' button in 'Synaptic Package Manager', I am facing the following errors:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Could not download all repository indexes

The repository may no longer be 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 ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 9.04 _Jaunty Jackalope_ - Release i386 (20090420.1)/dists/jaunty/main/binary-i386/Packages Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs
Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 9.04 _Jaunty Jackalope_ - Release i386 (20090420.1)/dists/jaunty/restricted/binary-i386/Packages Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyone please help me how to solve this issue?

Thanks,
Suranjit Paul

It just means that the repositories from the CDROM are failing (possibly you have a different version on the CD to the one that was originally used to install the system, or the /etc/apt/sources.list file has been changed for some reason).

Anyway, the error will not affect your updates, since I would assume that your updates are coming from the central repositories over the internet.

If you go to the repositories settings in Synaptic you can disable the CDROM as a repository so that the error will no longer be reported:
Code:

System > Administration > Synaptic >> Settings >> Repositories

Thanks. I got it. I unchecked that one. Now it's working fine. Thanks again.
