I have a dual boot win10/Ubuntu system. I had been out of the ubuntu a couple of days. After logging in this a.m. I ran sudo apt-get update. Then sudo apt-get upgrade and there was an error code relating to teamviewer.

E: Failed to fetch http://linux.teamviewer.com/deb/pool/teamviewer_14.0.8346_amd64.deb 403 Forbidden [IP: 2600:9000:2004:cc00:1c:3aaa:b100:93a1 80] E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

I tried typing --fix-missing and just fix-missing but konsole said commands not found. I tried going to the http link it listed and google says not found.

Pretty new to linux so please advise.

Your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teamviewer.list is probably incorrect.

Edit the file and make sure it says this:

deb http://linux.teamviewer.com/deb stable main

Update #1:

Probably the easiest way to edit this is to start Synaptic, enter your password, go to the Settings menu, choose Repositories, Other Software tab, find the teamviewer entry, and edit it there.

Remove broken teamviwer source list file and try to update.

sudo rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teamviewer.list

It won't impact on your Teamviewer which is installed. In future you can install latest teamviewer by downloading debian package from its official site. Above file will be generated automatically when you install it.
