apt-get update errors, what do they mean?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Since a good year I'm using several Orange Pi's,yes several...

And while doing some apt update/upgrade I'll see errors and want to know how to handle...



Showing up :

Get:45 http://apt.armbian.com jessie/jessie-desktop Translation-en [178 B]
Ign http://apt.armbian.com jessie/jessie-desktop Translation-en           


What does this "Ign" mean and what to do that this error disappear?


Showing up on the end :

Reading package lists... Done                                                                                          
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates/main armhf Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/security.
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems


Question 1:

what does the letter "W" mean ?

Question 2:

I don't see duplicate in the sources.list which is in /etc/apt

here a copy:

# Debian Jessie, d  p  t principal

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie main

# Debian Jessie, mises    jour de s  curit  

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main

# Debian Jessie, d  p  t principal + paquets non libres

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

# Debian Jessie, mises    jour de s  curit   + paquets non libres

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

# Debian Jessie, d  p  t de r  troportages ("backports")

#deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports main contrib non-free


Maybe i didn't understood all this entries..

explanation is welcome

Kind regards from Hans

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

ign is ignore - when there is nothing new or not needed = no error

W is in most logging files a Warning.

you have a double entry ;)

in line 2 (without a #) is the same as in line 4

security.debian.org/updates and there  main.

you could comment out the second line as line 4 has it all from security
