Re: Repository Problem


You can try to replace in /etc/apt/sources.list or using Synaptic
changing distribution in Settings/Repositories


Remember, you can see in a browser that the following URL
doesn't exists.  

Once you had done the change execute
apt-get update 
press Reload in Synaptic

Good luck
