I don't get Firefox 7 update. When I try to check for updates from update manager, I get:

W:Failed to fetch http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/dists/edgy/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
, W:Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/universe/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Any idea?

it looks like that your asking for the package's from ubuntu 6.10 are you using 6.10? –  Rens Sep 29 '11 at 6:37
No, I'm using 11.04. And I expect firefox to be updated to version 7.0. Since it's not, I tried to update manually. I don't know if this error have something to do with it. –  umpirsky Sep 29 '11 at 7:08

You're using a Wine and Ubuntu repository from five years ago. So yeah, that won't work anymore. ;)

It's a fairly innocuous problem. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list with administrator privileges and remove the lines with 'dists/edgy/' in them. Or leave them there, shouldn't matter.

In any case, none of this is affecting Firefox. F7 will land when it lands.
