• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

Hi all,
I am currently running Pop! v20.1
I was trying to run an upgrade and I got these 4 errors:
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/system76/pop/ubuntu/pool/main/p/pop-shell/pop-shell_1.0.0~1604528379~20.10~9f0976f_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.95.83 80]
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/system76/pop/ubuntu/pool/main/r/repolib/python3-repolib_1.5.0~1604352588~20.10~729acdf_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.95.83 80]
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/system76/pop/ubuntu/pool/main/r/repoman/repoman_2.0.0~1604087945~20.10~c49d13b_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.95.83 80]
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
I have tried:
sudo apt clean
sudo apt update -m
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt install -f
sudo apt dist-upgrade
sudo apt autoremove --purge

To no avail. I also tried running apt-get update or try with --fix-missing as recommended in the last error which also solved nothing.
Any help and suggestions would be highly appreciated,
thanks in advance,
Loki

Try running sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade.
I've seen there are some superficial changes made to some System76 icons because they were being buggy. Apparently, apt is being grumpy about it. The full-upgrade command should override those versions.

If that doesn't work, you may have to wait for a while and try again. I know that sounds odd, and it shouldn't be the case, but sometimes Launchpad just has connectivity weirdness. 🤷

What does cat /etc/apt/source.list output?

/etc/apt/sources.list should be empty. It's depricated. You should see this
Code:
❯ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/system.sources
X-Repolib-Name: Pop_OS System Sources
Enabled: yes
Types: deb deb-src
URIs: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
Suites: groovy groovy-security groovy-updates groovy-backports
Components: main restricted universe multiverse
X-Repolib-Default-Mirror: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
And this is the new way Pop sources apt (using DEB822 format)

Code:
❯ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pop-os-apps.sources
X-Repolib-Name: Pop_OS Apps
Enabled: yes
Types: deb
URIs: http://apt.pop-os.org/proprietary
Suites: groovy
Components: main

I think that is all ok. Here is what I got:
loki@loki:~$ cat /etc/apt/source.list
cat: /etc/apt/source.list: No such file or directory
loki@loki:~$ cd /etc/apt/
loki@loki:/etc/apt$ ls
apt.conf.d preferences.d sources.list~ sources.list.save trusted.gpg~
auth.conf.d sources.list sources.list.d trusted.gpg trusted.gpg.d
loki@loki:/etc/apt$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
## This file is deprecated in Pop!_OS.
## See `man deb822` and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/system.sources.
loki@loki:/etc/apt$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list~

deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://apt.pop-os.org/proprietary focal main
# deb-src http://apt.pop-os.org/proprietary focal main
loki@loki:/etc/apt$

Did the sources list get duplicated somehow? ie should I rm sources.list~?

Something else I just noticed and not sure if its related. Core 0 was pegged at 100% utilization, but I couldnt find any applications using anywhere close to that amount of power on system monitor. When I ran top I saw two instances of DecodeP+ using up a core a piece. What is that proccess? Anyway I killed them and they have not come back yet. This hasn't fixed my package issues but its strange because nothing comes up on google for DecodeP+

Also I tried moving the two duplicated files in /ect/apt, sources.list~ and trusted.gpg~ into a directory in my home folder and then I tried repairing the package manager again (apt clean, update -m, dpkg --configure -a, apt install -f and dist-upgrade). This didn't work either so I put the files back.

If you're on 20.10, it should be pointing to Groovy, not focal. What does /ect/apt/sources.list.d/pop-os-apps.sources say?

Code:
box2010@pop-os:/etc/apt/sources.list.d$ cat pop-os-apps.sources
X-Repolib-Name: Pop_OS Applications
Enabled: yes
Types: deb
URIs: http://apt.pop-os.org/proprietary

This is what I get:
loki@loki:/etc/apt$ cat sources.list.d/pop-os-apps.sources
X-Repolib-Name: Pop_OS Apps
Enabled: yes
Types: deb
URIs: http://apt.pop-os.org/proprietary
Suites: groovy
Components: main

Just as yours...
I thought that sources.list~ with the '~' was just like a backup of the old version sources.list (which is deprecated as you expected it to be) it made during the update. Is that not the case and does sources.list~ do something different to sources.list?

That might be your problem, because my 2010 has /etc/apt/sources.list~ with the following;

Many of us are still learning how the new format integrates into the system. From what I can see, you have uncommented sources pointing to focal. All the version numbers of the packages you posted originally are a little off. I can get to those packages on Launchpad, but not via your links. I would try to move that folder, or comment the entries. If that works, delete the file contents.

@derpOmattic Thanks for helping me save my system. Turns out sources.list~ was fubar; when I tried to nano into it and comment stuff per your suggestion, the file was blank. Weird because there was stuff in there yesterday so I am worried about how the file got corrupted. Anyway, seeing that your sources.list and sources.list~ output the same info, I just got rid of the blank file and did cp sources.list sources.list~. Then, I ran through the standard package manager repair commands and apt dist-upgrade was successful.
Cheers!
