what you said worked, but as soon as I update again its the same problem Err:10 http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports jammy/main amd64 Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 80]

I removed sources.list and sources.list.d and it seems to be working better(update upgrade), but i still get this end of update, E: Failed to fetch http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/jammy/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 80] E: Failed to fetch http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/jammy-updates/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 80] E: Failed to fetch http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/jammy-backports/universe/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 80] E: Failed to fetch http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/jammy-security/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 80] E: Some index files failed to download.

    I have Ubuntu 22.04 running as a VM in VMware. Try running Ubuntu Software Updater. Make sure Live Patch is running This works here.

  • Also, if you can get to a terminal session, run this: ...... sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove
