I’m running Ubuntu 12.10 (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-21-generic i686) on AWS.
When I try and install
unzip I get the following errors:
sudo apt-get install unzip Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: gir1.2-gudev-1.0 libgudev-1.0-0 netcat-traditional python-gi Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. Suggested packages: zip The following NEW packages will be installed: unzip 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded. Need to get 184 kB of archives. After this operation, 387 kB of additional disk space will be used. Err http://us-east-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates/main unzip i386 6.0-7ubuntu1.1 403 Forbidden Failed to fetch http://us-east-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/u/unzip/unzip_6.0-7ubuntu1.1_i386.deb 403 Forbidden E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
--fix-missing and everything else mentioned and still can’t get it to work. A few other packages seem to
install OK. But, it seems in the last month I’ve gotten no updates when doing
apt-get update then
apt-get upgrade. Maybe that is normal. It seems like I was getting more before.
apt-get update seems to pull down information and make connections.
Is it that I’m running Ubuntu 12.10 and not the latest? That would seem odd.
I’ve changed none of the apt-get config files.
I’ve followed the advice from Ubuntu Trusty on EC2 – apt-upgrade with 403 forbidden and it doesn’t help.
The preferred method of dealing with this is to upgrade to the latest long-term support (LTS) release. If you truly need old packages from an EOL distribution, you can find them on old-releases.ubuntu.com.
