update error checking for updates - Release Information Change


That worked, thanks for the help and it would be great if there were a cheat sheet with terminal codes when we get into these situations.

Have a great day!!!

Thanks for the info I will apply the terminal command and then let you know how it goes.

The message indicates that the Mozilla PPA repository has changed some of the release information on the package.  In this case, only the Mozilla package is reporting an issue, but the issue is preventing the update/upgrade process completing.

The update/upgrade process requires indication from the system user that these Mozilla PPA changes are OK.  To indicate acceptance of the release information change, run this command from a terminal.

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change update
--- End code ---

This allows the update process to continue.  Once the update process is done, complete the upgrade with

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get upgrade
--- End code ---

I would like to know also if this problem with Mozzila effects the other security updates coming through as well.

Howdy folks,
Can anyone explain what is happening with updates, this has been coming up all day.  Running LL 5.8 and I would appreciate the help.
