I think this is an original problem, as all suggested solutions I can find online have failed.
I'm running Ubuntu 13.10.
I am a very new linux user, but I'll try to decipher comments.
THE PROBLEM: I just installed Ubuntu. When I try to run sudo apt-get update, I get the response "The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/https could not be found."
As suggested on a separate feed, I tried sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https. It says that it can't find that package.
I tried to install nano, something I briefly read about. It couldn't find that package.
I opened Software & Updates, and set it to download from best server. That didn't change anything.
It seems any solution I try leads to "Failed to download repository information" or "cannot find package," which leads to "The method driver etc etc."
Do you guys have any idea what the problem is and how I can fix it? I feel like it there shouldn't be an s at the end of /usr/lib/apt/methods/http. What could I gedit to fix this?
Aha. I was able to manually install apt-transport-https and now update works. There must be something wrong with my software & updates settings, dang. Thanks anyway!
