For the past few months I’ve been unable to update my Brave browser, version 1.57.53 Chromium: 116.0.5845.114 (official build) 64 bit on my Dell laptop running Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS. Whenever I try to update using Terminal or Synaptic Package Manager I receive the following error message:
Could not download all repository indexes
The repository ‘https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/gezakovacs/ppa/ubuntu jammy Release’ does not have a Release file.Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.Skipping acquire of configured file ‘main/binary-i386/Packages’ as repository ‘https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com stable InRelease’ doesn’t support architecture 'i386’The repository ‘https://deb.etcher.io stable Release’ does not have a Release file.
I posted this issue on the Ubuntu Mate Forum and charles-nix replied with these instructions:
The Brave issue is that Brave no longer issues an i386 version. I can’t say why your sources.list specifies one, but it doesn’t matter. You don’t need to reinstall all the software, you need corrections to your file that tells synaptic/apt where to find the software packages.
You can do everything about the Brave you need in a few seconds, within Synaptic, on the repositories lines. Just change to match what is on the link reference on the brave forum. Then reload repositories, then update. In Synaptic, choose Settings > Repositories. Then Other Software tab, and highlight the repository affecting Brave. Make the line look like the sample linked after the deb part – meaning add the [arch=amd64] and that should be it. Or, you may have some reference locking into i386 in the same line that needs deleting. Close, reload repositories, update and you should be good.
Where can I find the link reference on this forum that charles-nix is referring to?
