    Hi
    Finally ditched Windows and with a lot of help from a friend installed Slitaz OS and before he left he showed me how to open a terminal and type: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to get all the latest updates. But all i get is:


    a load of errors, such as: Could not resolve @ email address, and Failed to fetch @ email address

    Could someone take pity on a linux noob and explain/show me how i might correct the above errors please.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    Haven't tried:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    yet because i don't understand what it will upgrade?

    Hello arochester
    Thanks for the reply and info. But i got things a little mixed up this morning i meant to say the distro i am running is antiX and not slitaz. Sorry about that.

    Antix is based on Debian Testing. The information about apt-get remains the same...
