I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, and the update manager claims that not all updates can be installed.

I ran sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade and got this:

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I'm using the main repository and have unchecked multiverse and restricted. How do I fix this?

You appear to have enabled a repository that it cannot find.

To fix this, do the following:

  • Open up the software sources configuration dialog (Press the ALT+F1 key, type "Software sources" and run the program that appears)
  • Choose the "Other sources" tab, and scroll down the list until you find the repository named "ftp.berlios.de"
  • Uncheck the repository (or delete it)

Press "Close" and select to refresh the software list when prompted.
