When I upgraded my server to 10.10, some of my sources (basically hudson and git) are now being ignored... any idea how I can get them active again? The entries are in the /etc/apt/sources.list file, but the status line on apt-get update says

Ign binary/ Packages

Please add the contents of the sources.list entry. – Jorge Castro Nov 2 '10 at 15:34

Maybe this apt line is no more valid for maverick (10.10) version and it was only available for lucid (10.04).

Yeah, turns out they changed the repo for maverick, so had to reinstall. – Sudhir Jonathan Nov 2 '10 at 16:36

If you are receiving a Hit line after the Ign one all should be OK.

Ign lines appear because newer versions of apt-get try to get the package list in .bz2 format first. If it fails, it will try to load the old format and report a Hit if it success or and Err if it fails.
