First time posting. I tried to install CUPS on Raspberry Pi 4 but it appears that the package manager is trying to access the wrong file...Screenshot_20200222_162224|690x388

P.P.S. Are you running on ARM as it's trying to install packages for ARM...

Apply transaction ? [y/N] y Error 404 Error 404

There are some other mirror sites with the same 404 error (new users can only use two links..)

Error: Failed to commit transaction: failed to retrieve some files

Resolved with release notes of most recent update. Updated mirror list

That's a dependency error.

  1. Please see the answer below this one.
  2. in the future, just remove the HTTPS:// from the link and you can post many more! :wink:
  3. Please read this again and ensure you use the Preformatted text button as per below screenshot:
    Preformatted text
    and then copy-paste the text of the output in the terminal in the space where it says type or paste code here because your output is a bit unreadable as it stands now. :sob:

:innocent: :wink:

Please update your databases first. A 404 error means the file does not exist.
