When I try to update software on 11.10 I get the following errors:

W: GPG error: akirad-oneiric InRelease: File /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/repository.akirad.net_dists_akirad-oneiric_InRelease doesn't start with a clearsigned message
W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/repository.akirad.net_dists_akirad-oneiric_main_binary-i386_Packages Encountered a section with no Package: header
W: Failed to fetch  No Hash entry in Release file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/repository.akirad.net_dists_akirad-oneiric_main_i18n_Index
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Updating software through the GUI also gives me errors about downloading packages, but they are a lot less verbose.

I never had any trouble performing updates in the last version of Ubuntu.

What do I need to do to fix this error?

I guess you are just unlucky, the ppl behind that repo forgot to renew they domain registration!

(I'm guessing that '' is the correct address and you didn't made any mistakes there, but '' is closed!)

Thanks, I removed that repository and it fixed the problem. I wonder what software that used to be... – user168715 Oct 24 '11 at 14:27
No idea, that was why I was looking for the packages but the domain was not more :S – Bruno Pereira Oct 24 '11 at 14:29
