April 14 2015: synaptic/apt-get down?

Question

Is it just my three machines (2.4 on two; 2.4 Chromebook C720 on one), or are the repos down?  Seems to apt-get update okay, but apt-get dist-upgrade crashes at "package lists...95%"

 

Synaptic manager crashes with no error other than 139.

Leave getdeb out. AFAIK getdeb works for the current Ubuntu and 12.04 is getting only security updates, no new stuff anymore.

But I thought the Bodhi precise repos was still available.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

 

PS. There should be a space between bodhi and precise in that line

Hi, thanks for your quick post--yes, in sources.list, there was the proper spacing. Above is a cut-n-paste error.

 

Funny, I did apt-get dist-upgrade yesterday and all was fine.

GetDeb repos for 12.04 have been offline for a month or so now. The official get deb repos are working again so we aren't using resources to mirror them any longer.

 

A single repo being down shouldn't stop apt-get from completing an update though. It should just mention missing repos at the end.

That's what I figured too, but until I made those comment-outs, I couldn't get anywhere--and yesterday was fine.

 

Jeff, which official get deb repo would you recommend for sources.list?
