You may start getting “Failed to fetch” error messages when updating your software sources (e.g. through “
apt-get update” or “Reload package information” in Synaptic), which may be due to a bug we’ve just cleaned up in Launchpad’s PPAs.
The error looks like this:
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/Release Unable to find expected entry restricted/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?) E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
