Seems like I need add ppa repository.

Could you please help?

  • try this sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dell-team/ppa then sudo apt-get update – George Udosen Dec 22 '16 at 20:00
  • @George, I have tried this. – aerokite Dec 22 '16 at 20:11
  • All of the "hosts" you can't connect to have invalid hostnames: dell.archive.canonical.com:http:. Do you have a misplaced "http:" in your configuration? – waltinator Dec 22 '16 at 21:41
