unfortunately you can't fetch ppa.launchpad.net/sgringwe/rdio/ubuntu/dists/trusty/main/… because the repository doesn't exist for trusty. As I could see, the newest Version of that repo is for Raring. So you can try and change the repo to raring and see if the packages of that version are good to go in trusty or deactivate/delete the repos.

Try performing the full update via a terminal, like this: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade (update only syncronizes the package lists, it doesn't actually perform any installations) If it is not able to process any/some of the downloads or installations, it should provide a more detailed description of what's wrong.

Raring (13.04, not 14.04) is not available anymore, as it's not an LTS release and it's too old. Change your sources to a newer version in /etc/apt/sources.list, then it should work again. if you already got 14.04 sources in your sources.list, simply delete the raring entries.

You can right click on the icon in the launcher to close it. Then you can load it from the start menu by typing in 'updater'. For me this loaded it up properly, although it's the second day in a row it's done this so not sure if it's a permanent fix...

There is a key difference about how update-manager and apt/apt-get attempt to check for the update. update-manager first checks the Internet connection by asking NetworkManager for the state of the connection. apt/apt-get, in contrast, tries to make a direct connection to the mirror. This can create a big difference, as you have discovered. As the strength ...
