DigitalOcean mirrors failing?

Tried to do apt-get on my ubuntu droplet and getting a ton of 404’s similar to this:

Failed to fetch l-dev_1.0.1-4ubuntu5.10_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 80]

I’m facing the same problem in Ubuntu 14.10. apt-get update fails with digital ocean mirrors if I move to default ubuntu mirrors works.

Hello! <br> <br>Please execute this command to update your package lists, then retry your installation: <br> <br>apt-get update <br> <br>Regards, <br>Will <br>

I have this issues as well, but I figure out it need to have apt-get update first, then apt-get dist-upgrade will work

Ansible will be like this:

  • name: Run the equivalent of “apt-get update” as a separate step apt: update_cache: true

  • name: apt-get dist-upgrade apt: upgrade: dist autoclean: true become: true
