I've tried to unninstall Steam by typing sudo apt-get purge steam and also remove steam. When I apt-get update, I get an error in the Steam repo:

Err http://repo.steampowered.com precise/steam amd64 Packages

and also

Err http://repo.steampowered.com precise/steam i386 Packages

Anytime I try to install another software, I can't. Does anyone knows how can I fix this?

  • Anytime I try to install another software, I can't. Can you tell us why? What errors do you see? – Jan Aug 26 '14 at 13:51

If you really want to remove Steam, you need to remove the corresponding line(s) from your /etc/apt/sources.lst file and then apt-get update.

  • And which lines are that? – Lucas Zanella Aug 26 '14 at 23:32
  • I never used Steam, most probably there's a line containing the word 'steam'... – Jan Aug 27 '14 at 9:37
