Thanks

How do I get rid of the long list of 'Skipping acquire of configured file'? I don't know what it means

  • It doesn't. If i try the remove command I get sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:wireguard/wireguard Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~wireguard/ubuntu/wireguard'. The team named '~wireguard' has no PPA named 'ubuntu/wireguard' Please choose from the following available PPAs:

  • I've just googled Wiregaurd because I've never heard of it and it's some sort of VPN. I use Nordvpn - is it part of that? Or is it something that is part of Elementary? If I don't need it because I use Nordvpn then can I get rid of this Wireguard? Why would I even have it?

  • I guess you're just gonna have to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and delete all lines containing the wireguard ppa. Yes, wireguard is a VPN provider, and I cannot tell you how you got it installed, but the point is that ppa is throwing errors cause it is no longer active. Even if you might need the wireguard package in the future, it is inlcuded in the ubuntu repositories now. Also look inside the /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder, and delete any files with wireguard in their names, if any.

  • The IP error for Wireguard has gone but I still get this long list of 'Skipping acquire of configured file' so once again I don't know what this is or what I need to do.
