My /etc/apt/sources.list contained:

nazar_art@nazar-desctop:/etc/apt$ cat source.list
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-security main universe
nazar_art@nazar-desctop:/etc/apt$ cat sources.list.old
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise universe
nazar_art@nazar-desctop:/etc/apt$ cat source.list
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-security main universe
nazar_art@nazar-desctop:/etc/apt$ 

I updated according to this post How do I restore the default repositories?

But It called another problem when I run sudo apt-get update I have some output like this:

Err http://ua.archive.ubuntu.com main/restricted Sources

and this:

UPDATE:

I did this command (Thanks NikTh):

find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \;

whole output:

It looks like you're cat'ing source.list, but apt uses /etc/apt/sources.list. Can you post the contents of that file? –  WildVelociraptor Aug 6 '13 at 19:22
    
Open a terminal and copy-paste from here this command find /etc/apt -name '*.list' -exec bash -c 'echo -e "\n$1\n"; cat -n "$1"' _ '{}' \; then edit your question and add the full results. –  NikTh Aug 6 '13 at 19:48
    
@NikTh I updated question, can you give any hint about solution? –  nazar_art Aug 9 '13 at 6:10

Seems that your problem resolved. Ign is not an error , is normal. The local server generally is the best option because is close to you. Now you are using the US server (we replaced this when we wget the pastebin URL in above comments). You can change servers and see what fit your needs. –  NikTh Aug 9 '13 at 22:28

@NikTh of course, the correct format is Questions in the question and solution/answers in the answer section. This guy messed up his installation since the whole question was a mess. Please, if you see someone appending the solution to the question, rollback the edit and ask for OP to post it as answer instead or post it yourself. –  Braiam Dec 29 '13 at 21:22

  • How to solve this trouble in Ubuntu 12.04

Open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and issue the following commands in order.

SOLUTION:

sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list ~/ 
sudo wget "http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=uzhrtg5M" -O /etc/apt/sources.list 
sudo apt-get update
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-extras.list
sudo apt-get update

This solution is not general. It is specific to the sources.list file of the Original Poster.

The second command which starts with wget downloads and replaces the sources.list file with a specific for Precise (Ubuntu 12.04) sources.list file. See the file in raw format by visiting this page.

The fourth command removes the ubuntu-extras.list file which had an impact/conflict with another file of the same, so we removed it to avoid the error

W: Duplicate sources.list entry

see comments above.

I think it means that these sources can't be rached:

http://ua.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/-backports/restricted/binary-i386/Packages  
http://ua.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/-backports/universe/binary-i386/Packages   
http://ua.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/-backports/multiverse/binary-i386/Packages  

try selecting another server to fetch from (not the one in Ukraine)

try selecting another server to fetch from not the (one in Ukraine) how can I do this? –  nazar_art Aug 7 '13 at 6:54
    
open ubuntu software centre go to : edit-> Software sources, and change download from to the main server or united states –  speedox Aug 7 '13 at 6:58
    
It was main server - I changed to USA server but caught the same result - here you can see the end of output. How to solve this trouble? –  nazar_art Aug 7 '13 at 7:20
