HELP WITH APT SOURCE>LIST

Wed Jan 16, 2013 1:18 am

I tried changing my source.list file to include the debian packages along with the raspbian ones and I screwed everything up. I put it back to normal but i still can't get packages from any repo and the console just says something like "no entry version for package".
help

Hi! To help me diagnose your issue, please post the output of

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
This will attempt to, and hopefully succeed in refreshing your source list. If not, it will lead us closer to the problem.

If that command succeeds, post the output of

Code: Select all

apt-cache search e
This will verify that the package lists are valid and can be searched. (The packages that show up are not important, by the way, in this case)

It looks like you've got a typo in your sources.list. it should read "http", not "hhtp".

Could you check, correct if needed and try again please.

did not work at all. I have no idea what I did to f it up so bad but it is useless right now because I can't get stuff like open box. or lynx.

thanks for trying to help
apt-cache search e works but a can not install any packages.
sudo apt-get update says things about failing to fetch http://archive.raspbian.org.debian/dist ... /InRelease
and could not resolve archive.raspbian.orrg

That is because the server name is archive.raspbian.org, no ".debian" on the end. Raspbian is not part of Debian, it is a seperate system built exactly the same way as the Debian system, using the same code, but specifically for the Raspberry Pi.

Could you show us the full content of your sources.list file, then we can check it and correct it f needed.
