Failed download repository updates


I am using the distro LXLE 64bit and when i try to update the above i get this message.



"Could not connect to archive.getdeb.net:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
(got this in Synaptic Package Manager)"

Any idea's please.

Hi henbit, and welcome to LQ.

Try accessing getdeb.net - it appears to be no longer. I would advise you to disable/remove it from your software sources. If you don't know how to do that, please let us know.
