can't install packages from http://ppa.launchpad.net

Asked by ilya dorman on 2010-12-10

Hi,
I get this at the end of any installation involving launchpad.net:
(I tried installing several different programs and using different servers)

W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net maverick Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 4EA3A911D48B8E25
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/dockbar-main/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/Release Unable to find expected entry deb-src/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/blueman/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/source/Sources.gz 404 Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/blueman/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Thanx

sudo apt-key adv --recv-key --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 4EA3A911D48B8E25

If you visit:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/blueman/ppa/ubuntu/dists/

You will see your blueman PPA doesn't have a maverick folder, it only goes up to Lucid so it is of no value to you and should be deleted.

thanx, but how do i solve the maverick folder issue?
should i change the dist name in the software sources?

Yes, please rename the dist name. As you can see in
http://ppa.launchpad.net/blueman/ppa/ubuntu/dists/
the PPA doesn't publish any packages for maverick.

Can you help with this problem?
