Default how do I fix error: linux mint elyssa 5.1 could not download all repository indexes

Hello All,

I will happily provide extra info as requested!!! My computer is an extremely new & very fast pc. I think that it has dual core processors, 4 Gigabytes of RAM and also has a one terabyte HDD!!!! I also use the Telstra Bigpond ADSL Liberty ISP plan. ( I don't really understand this.. so I hope that it makes sense to someone! )


I'm having some problems with the Synaptic Package Manager.

Basically all my repository server internet addresses are totally incorrect, in the Synaptic Package Manager. Because of this I cannot update my system with the updates.


I've tried googling for:

how do I fix linux mint elyssa 5.1 could not download all repository indexes

but I'm not finding any useful info. ;-(

I have been told by many people that Google.com is a very powerful search engine etc -- however, I have to admit that I don't fully understand how to use it, eg. to search.


I borrowed a Library book called "Google Search & Rescue for DUMMIES" -- but I don't know when I'll find time to read it ;-(

Can someone please tell me or show me how to put in the correct web addresses (I don't know the correct name) for the Synaptic Package Manager.


I currently boot-up my computer from a CD-ROM and it boots into Mint Linux 5.1 Gnome Desktop. Even when my repositories are not being updated I find the Operating System to be VERY STABLE!!!! I have read in computer magazines etc that Linux Mint 5 is a very good OS and I agree!!!


I'm only a Linux Newbie, and although I've been using it for years, I still get very confused and worried about typing Linux commands into the terminal shells. This is because I'm a 'newbie' at linux and I don't understand the commands. I have printed out heaps and heaps of documents on paper.. and I have so very many pieces of paper that I loose track of them!!!!!! ;-(


I will appreciate any help. Please be kind to me... as I have a mental illness, and I need to keep taking my prescription medication... which works extremely well... as long as I don't forget to take it!.

Yours Sincerely and With Much Love,


Praying for someone kind to help me!!!
