Gimp Update Error 4.x InRelease changed its Label value from gimp to gimp stable

(1/4) > >>

Thanks for the explanation Steve, much appreciated. Kinda new in Linux word, only uses Centos before but almost only CLI and for networking for the most part.
I unchecked those PPAs and other updates went through. Almost done tweaking my settings, like it so far :)
Thanks again!


Your machine is using some software (compton) that uses PPA (Personal Package Archive) for distribution.  PPA aren't part of the supported software repositories.  Unfortunately, if there is a problem with a listed PPA it stops the update process working because the machine cannot find everything on the list.

To remove a failing PPA from the list and allow the rest of the update to work check the manual at

and remove the offending PPA as described there.

As I understand it, removing a PPA from the sources list is a workaround to allow the update process to complete to ensure that other packages get their updates. But it means you will not get any updates from that source in the future.

If you need (and trust) the software source you may want to check periodically to see if the PPA is put back on line by reversing the change you made.

To start a new topic, select and enter the most appropriate forum sub section then look for "New Topic" icon in the upper right part of the display just below the "Download Linux Lite 5.2 today - See Release Announcements" line.


I am noob here and I could not even foundwhere I can open a new forum topic. Searched for hours. Is this something newbies can't do yet?
I really live Linux Lite so I finally did a clear install on my laptop. Everyting working fine after some tuning but started to have update issues a day ago very similar to this one.

Followed this topic but did not work for me. What am I missing?
Thanks in advance.

It worked. Thank you so much.

Thanks for this. It looks like my machine hasn't been updated for a while.    :)
