Ubuntu Jaunty: Error authenticating packages partial upgrade

Was getting this error when trying to do a partial upgrade in Ubuntu (I didn’t select ‘Partial Upgrade’, it brought it up on its own). Then checked in Synaptic->Repositories->Authentication. Apparently, http://ppa.launchpad.net jaunty was not authenticated.

A quick google brought me to this post. Looks like I’m not the only one with this problem. I followed the instructions left by one of the users and that fixed the authentication problem.

Then tried running the Partial upgrade again and it worked!

  1. well this lock like you have selected/checked too many repositories in the third party softwares list so please try to reduce the list from just the official Ubuntu partners of softwares.

    • Possibly, but official doesn’t have all the apps I need, hence launchpad. However, as I said in the post, the problem has been resolved and I haven’t had a problem since
