Problem

When I try to update my Debian system, I receive these errors:

$ sudo apt-get update
...
Err http://www.backports.org lenny-backports/main Packages
  404 Not Found [IP: 86.59.118.148 80]
...
W: Failed to fetch http://www.backports.org/debian/dists/lenny-backports/main/binary-i386/Packages ↵
404 Not Found [IP: 86.59.118.148 80]
...

I have this line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free

Environment

  • Debian-5.0.8 (Lenny)

Solution

Debian acquired the backports service and users of the old backports service should change their /etc/apt/sources.list to point to deb:

deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports lenny-backports main contrib non-free
