I tried to run the two recommended solutions but they do also not solve the problem. I tried to search for the problem but I was not able to find something similar.

  • Can you post your /etc/apt/sources.list ?

  • Very probably the package files have not been synchronised to your mirror yet (transferring files takes sonme time!). Try again in an hour.

    I think the time does not affect the problem. I tried a week ago for the first time and still have the above described problem.

I guess your package manager list of packages and cache is obsolete.

but why?

You are using xenial, one of the packages that you are trying to reach is libpam-systemd, which your pkg manager tries to fetch from here:

http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/s/systemd/libpam-systemd_229-4ubuntu11_amd64.deb

Which server responds you with a 404, that means it's does not exist.

If you check the main repository, you will see that it's not there too.

And if you search for libpam-systemd in xenial-updates section at Ubuntu packages. the result would be 229-4ubuntu16 while you are trying to reach 229-4ubuntu11, and the other thing is that this new version is available on your chosen repository. here it is.

What to do?

Update your lists:

sudo apt update

It should do the work for you.

However, if after updating the lists, you still got the problem, try removing these files and then run the above command again:

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin

  • This looks like it solved error. I'm not completely sure, but sudo apt upgrade shows nothing to do now. Thanks for the help.

  • In my case this happened when launching a fresh, empty Ubuntu 16.04 image on Amazon AWS. Seems like sudo apt update must be run to bring it up to date. Commented Oct 18, 2017 at 3:42
