Hi, new the linux, using lubuntu on laptop. I know this forum is for 'full fat' ubuntu, but I'm hoping that someone here might be able to help me. Every time i try adding a repositary i receive the following:

I get similar output whatever repo i try to add. There are youtube videos on how to solve in ubuntu, but nothing similar for its little cousin. Your help is much appreciate, because i am pulling out my hair! Please be aware i am a beginner.

It is better to copy and paste here, instead of posting a picture. That way we can click on connections to see where they lead.

What does your sources.list and sources the contents of the directory sources.list.d say?

Is this a new installation or an upgrade?

Hello Alboy,
From your screenshot it looks like the repositories you are having trouble with are lubuntu-desktop and i-nex-development-team. I have looked at the Lauchpad pages for both of these and neither has a repo for cosmic, which is why they are failing.

https://launchpad.net/~i-nex-development-team/+archive/ubuntu/daily/+index

https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

If you go to those pages and click where it says "Technical details about this PPA" then select the drop down menu to "Choose your Ubuntu version", it will list what versions it is available for. (It doesn't matter which *buntu verity you are using and the You Tube videos should apply to Lubuntu.)

When you use the command sudo add-apt-repository ppa/* Ubuntu will try to add the repository relevent to the release you have installed. If it is not available you will received a 404 error as in your case.

WRT lubuntu-desktop repo, you should not need to add this, as it is included in the Ubuntu standard repositories and you will received all updates, assuming you have not disabled them.

WRT i-nex. It doesn't appear to have been updated since March 2017, and the last code commit to GitHub was in May 2017. You COULD try adding a repo for an older Ubuntu version, but I would not advise this because it could cause dependency conflicts.

I hope this clarifies things for you.

Hi again. My point is that i get the 404 error whatever repo i try adding. I understand that some may be old and therefore inaccessible. I receive the line about repo cannot be accessed and is disabled by default whatever repo i try adding.

As requested here is my source list:

As @usul_of_arakis said there is NO I-Nex ppa for Cosmic (at the moment?). So this link is incorrect. Since it does not appear in your sources list the connection must be in the directory sources.list.d.

I would normally start my Package Manager from Terminal with Sudo rights e.g.
Code:
sudo pcmanfm
, navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d and delete the folder for I-Nex. Then reboot.

Your sources list seems to contain a lot of clutter. I would reduce it to e.g.
###### Ubuntu Main Repos
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ cosmic main restricted universe multiverse

###### Ubuntu Update Repos
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ cosmic-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ cosmic-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ cosmic-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ cosmic-backports main restricted universe multiverse
Note that Lubuntu is not a little cousin of Ubuntu. In a way it is Ubuntu but with a different desktop manager.
Ubuntu=Gnome
Kubuntu =KDE
Xubuntu=Xfce4
Lubuntu =LXQt
