I just tried to get the important security updates to Samba and I just got 403’ed, no shit.
Pics or it didn’t happen you say, well here you go
They are working on it… the “…packages have been disabled due to a regression.” “Turns out there were more problems with the patch and all releases have been disabled. Updated packages for Dapper, Edgy, Feisty and Gutsy will be provided soon.” —Jamie Strandboge
There is a lively discussion on Launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/samba/+bug/163116)
And please for the love of [insert deity here (if applicable)] do not go on #ubuntu and ask about this they will tell you !sambabug. And then ubotu will say “A defect has been identified in a recent security update and as a result the associated packages have been taken offline. Please disregard any 403 errors you may receive when trying to apply updates. They will disappear once this problem is resolved.” and that is it.
It’s all good now, updates are working now.
