I'm trying to get the ubuntugis repo to install on a server and I keep getting the line:

Ign lucid/main Translation-en_GB

when I do an apt-get update.

This is not correct behaviour. I have cleared the folders /var/cache/apt/ and /var/lib/apt/lists/ so that I can be sure apt-cache shouldn't be using its local cache but I still have that repo ignored when updating.

Can someone please tell me what to do to try and troubleshoot this? I don't really understand what is wrong and don't know where to go from here to troubleshoot this.

The "Ign" just means that there is nothing new from the repo that needs downloading and you're up to date.
