Apt-get update error
October 15, 2014 11:03PM

I dont know why im getting this errors after running an apt-get update on my pogoplug V3 running debian wheezy thanks to Shv's rootfs.

root@debian:~# apt-get update

W: Failed to fetch http://cdn.debian.net/debian/dists/wheezy/main/binary-armel/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I think that is because of this that i cant install Transmission or Samba on my little box. Could you guys help me with this please?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

pd: Im just starting to learn linux

Sometime a mirror is offline. You could try again, or check to see which Debian mirror is close to you and use that:

You can change it in your /etc/apt/sources.list. This is the content of the source list in one of my plugs.
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy main
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

"cnd" means https://wiki.debian.org/DebianGeoMirror

Meaning if debian server find your ip is from Japan, is will redirect you Japan debian mirror, this way update will be faster it and save them traffic.
