Failed to load repository information

Running Zorin OS 15.3

I’m getting the above error message when I use the software updater

I’ve clicked on settings to get to “Software & Updates” then the “Other Software” tab to find the repository list & checked I can see each repository using a browser & they all appear to be there

Any ideas where I should look ?

@eyot Hi and welcome to the forum.
Have you changed your software sources for installs/updates set to ‘Main Server’ instead of your country server?
Which version of 15.3 do you have e.g. Core or Lite?

So the repositories work in a browser.
What error do you get?
If you run

sudo apt-get update

Doss it work or give you a better error message?

Just throwing this in: Software Updater settings

Hi all, thanks for the assists, hope this is useful

@zabadabadoo - I’m running the Core version
Installs/updates were set to the UK server, I just changed it to the main server & I’m getting the same issue

@carmar @zabadabadoo - I can’t post an image of the current settings as I’m new here & I’ve had to break the links for the same reason

So in Software & updates
Zorin Software tab
All but source code checkboxes are ticked
Download is from “Main Server”

Other Software tab, checked options are
dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ main
download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/xUbuntu_18.04/ ./
ppa. launchpad. net/zorinos/apps/ubuntu bionic main

@jgordon - tried the “sudo apt-get update” & got the following

I don’t know why you have an opensuse repository in there but as you can see from here: Software Updater settings it is not the right one for Wine.
Remove that and you should be fine.

@eyot How did you install Wine?
Using “Windows App Support” package from Software centre is reccomended:

(Edit to point to first post in that thread, not 8th. My bad)

@carmar, I unchecked the opensuse repository & the updater works, without any errors, thanks :+1:

@zabadabadoo, Hi, I used the built in “System Tools” > “Software” application to install wine

I moved to Zorin when my Windows 7 system stopped getting updates & there were a couple of games that I wanted to keep that had no Linux equivalents otherwise I wouldn’t be using it at all

Thanks for the help everyone, I’m happy to close this

Glad your system is fixed. If you happen to run into Wine problems in the future, try steps #1 & #2 here: NET Framework 4.5.2
