E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old` 

How can I fix this? It happens every time i run sudo apt-get update?

Best Answer

Most of your PPA are outdated or doesn't exist anymore. For example the last one "http://ppa.launchpad.net/amith/ubuntutools/ubuntu/dists/raring/main/binary-i386/Packages" should be replaced with "http://ppa.launchpad.net/amith/ubuntutools/ubuntu/dists/quantal/main/binary-i386/Packages".

Look at your /etc/sources.list (or the files in /etc/sources.list.d) and remove or fix those lines that cause the error.

UPDATE:

The answer here should help.
