[SOLVED] Ubuntu 10.10 repo Error (malformed Release file?)

Postby dekthor » 11. Oct 2010, 10:32

I didn't know where else to put this. I apologize if I have it in the wrong place.

I added this to my /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian maverick non-free

W: Failed to fetch http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualb ... ck/Release Unable to find expected entry non-free/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

Thank you,
Dekthor

Version 3.2.10 is due out today and probably will fix your problem as well. I know the 10.10 downloads were made available last week in 3.2.8 but I don't believe they made it to repo. Let us know if this does not fix your problem in a day or two.

Hi dekthor, Perryg,

I'm getting the same message:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
W: Failed to fetch http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/dists/maverick/Release  Unable to find expected entry  non-free/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)


Using Ubuntu 10.10 amd64 installed a few hours ago.

Thanks,
Claudio

Hi dekthor,

I think I have the solution to this error. Check your sources.list; you'll probably find these two lines:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian maverick non-free
deb-src http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian maverick non-free


Remove the second line (since there's no source repo to the PUEL edition), and run apt-get again.
