I have just update backbox 5 to Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful). As is always the case the update disabled the PPA's whilst this was happening. If i now re-enable the repository, I receive the following errors:
Code: [Select]
Hit:1 xenial InRelease
Hit:2 artful InRelease
Get:3 xenial-security InRelease [102 kB]     
Ign:4 zesty InRelease             
Hit:5 artful-updates InRelease         
Hit:6 lucid InRelease
Hit:7 xenial InRelease                     
Hit:8 artful-backports InRelease       
Hit:9 artful-security InRelease       
Hit:10 xenial-updates InRelease           
[color=blue]Hit:11 xenial InRelease [/color]         
Get:12 xenial-backports InRelease [102 kB]
[color=red]Err:13 zesty Release             
  404  Not Found
Hit:14 artful InRelease               
Reading package lists... Done                     
E: The repository ' zesty Release' does not have a Release file.[/color]
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
What i would like to know please is if I can now remove this PPA as I seem to also have another PPA with the same path, but for the xenial release, shown in blue
