The only time I see that message is either when I haven't updated (or
the update failed) after a change in sources.list...

OK, maybe I am posting the wrong error message? Here is what I get
after I update in Synaptic:

http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia/dists/dists/etch/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz:
404 Not Found

It looks to me like the path is correct, however I am a newbie so...
am I doing something wrong?

Cheers,

Brian
The error appears to be that there are two "dists" in the URL. Only one is needed:

<http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia/dists/etch/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz>

Is your sources.list entry like this?:

deb http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia/ etch main
