Repositories will be down on Sep 18th
The main Linux Mint repositories packages.linuxmint.com will be down for maintenance on Wednesday September 18th from 9am London time onwards.
The downtime could take between 1 and 24 hours. We’ll do our best to go as fast as we can and to minimize the downtime.
You might experience error messages in the Update and Software Managers. Please ignore them as they are only temporary, or use one of the following workarounds below.
Workaround for Linux Mint 15 users
Launch the Software Sources by clicking Menu->Preferences->Software Sources.
In “Official repositories”, within the “Mirrors” section, click on the button for “Main (Olivia)”.
Wait for a minute or two as the Software Sources finds the fastest mirror for you and select it as a replacement for packages.linuxmint.com.
Once you’ve selected a mirror, click the “Update cache” button.
Workaround for users of other editions/releases
Don’t hesitate to ask questions or to seek advice. If you are confused by this warning and not sure what to do, just wait it out and be aware that the problem is on our side, that it is temporary and that it will resolve automatically.
