There's also the /etc/apt/sources.list.d as well. Each file in that directory can contain other repositories your system will search.

Check there to see if you're referencing an outdated repo.

  • I did try that and removed the repo but then again when I tried to install software-properties-common or gedit I get the above error

Now I know what was going on

The ISP company that provide my internet has as poor DNS, so I changed the DNS to 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 to modem's configuration and now everything is updating.

All my sources.list.d/ files was poiting to bionic which it's the right thing to do.

So if anyone has this problem, please try to check your DNS first

Thanks Elementary Team for this Awesome operation system that I use for my everyday work :)

  • Changing the DNS worked for me. Thank you!
