Apt-get update is hanging at 100%, I've restored my sources.list file to default, yet the problem persists. It's not really a huge issue since it appears to have completed, but it's just cosmetically hung.

uname -a

Linux eOS 3.16.0-45-generic #60~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 24 21:16:23 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Here's my apt-get log

  • Why does your sources have hxxp:// not http://? It looks strange but maybe I'm not aware of something obvious. – morningbird Aug 4 '15 at 15:47
  • I had to replace all the http's with hxxp's because stack exchange wouldn't let me post "links" – morriscode Aug 4 '15 at 15:58

I think I resolved this. Apparently the sources.list isn't the only place that contains repositories. I ended up opening the software center and went to edit >software sources.

There was a repo for steam and tox. Once I removed those apt-get behaved normally.

Sorry!
