Default Couldn't Stat source package

I am trying to download with apt-get update on my ubuntu server and i am getting an error message W: Couldn't stat source package

Then it lists an http: location.

It also mentions something (2 No such file or directory)


I ran into this before, but I don't know what I did to resolve it? I remember I tried rebooting logging in as a different user

Am I not getting out to the internet or what could be stopping these updates?

Default Confused

Well I reinstalled the whole thing and went through the steps on How to set up samba on ubuntu and this time I get very similiar error messages. But on the first package it tried to find and I could see the percentage slowing increasing until 50% and then it stopped and I got a bunch of error messages that said Temporary failure resolving security.ubuntu.com.

I am going to attach a picture of my screen in case seeing the rest of the error messages helps someone see and solve my problem



Maybe this update is not possilbe because Ubuntu download location is down???? Just guessing.

The errors mean that you have a problem with your internet connection. If you get an error about resolving a domain, you will have to check that the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf are working and reachable from your server.

I checked the name server but how do I check if they are reachable?

I pinged the address It gave me . then I pinged it on my windows machine. I got a reply no problem? Is there a way I can test my internet connection on Linux?

It says it is a temporary failure resolving security.ubuntu.com

What would it mean by temporary?

The error message is always temporary, even if its a permanent failure. I suggest to try another nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf. Did you get more nameserver IP addresses from your provider that you cann add in the resolv.conf?

Can you post the output of these ping attempts? http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...95&postcount=5

Also, what's in /etc/resolv.conf?

Actually I never got a nameserver IP address? at least not that I knew of, the one in there now got there automatically. So if I ask my isp for another nameserver ip address they'll now what I mean?

Falko, maybe you hit a problem, ping attempts google came back unknown and the number came back unreachable.

Name server= 66.82.4.8

It seems like I may not be connected. I have attempted several installs and the other times I was connected without even thinking about it. Might I have to do some manual configuration for my ethernet connection to be found? When installing ubuntu originally it asks a question about what I would like to use to connect between wireless and my ethernet. I don't have wireless here so I choose the ethernet. Than it always comes to a place where it tries to auto configure DCHP, it always comes back that it was unable what would I like to do, so I say retry and it comes back that it has successfully configured it.

Funny this has worked before automatically but since then I have re installed.

Not sure what I am doing wrong

I tested my machine in another network port that was definatly getting out to the internet, Negative

Please try to configure the network settings as described on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_5.10_p3 (of course, use your own IP addresses, etc.).
