Not able to update or install software

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I don't know enough to see where I'm having an issue. From other threads I thought this info might point out what is going on;

When I try to install a program using the Software manager, the program does not install.

When I try an update, I get this message -

In my experience when I get these kinds of errors the internet connection is having an issue. Either a configuration settings is messed up on the local machine or the cable modem is down... can you ping your router/google/any internet site?

I suspect your system is looking for a path to a repository or a specific file that's not showing up and generating the 404. From the system in question see if you can open a browser and if you can get to 91.189.92.201 . Does the error truncate part of the path? If not see if you can manually work your way down to the file and see if it's present. If you not able to get webpages to load via IP you've got bigger issues than updating. Let us know what you find and we'll go from there.

It seems that the issue is I have Mint 10 which is no longer supported. This was a folding machine that I gave to a friend. Thanks for the input.
