I installed Linux Mint 17 Qiana (Cinamon).

When I run sudo apt-get update, I got output:

Err http://archive.canonical.com qiana/partner amd64 Packages

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

How to solve this trouble

  • Canonical Partner repositories don't have any quiana build, just remove those entries from your sources.list. – Braiam Oct 19 '14 at 3:43
  • @Braiam I executed sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list - and list is empty. How to fix it. – nazar_art Oct 19 '14 at 10:20

I solved it by clearing /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list

and clear this list.

Now all work fine.
