Looks like wrong ppa address:

Kamal’s is ppa:kamalmostafa/fldigi

The Ubuntu Hams repository is ppa:ubuntu-hams-updates/ppa

Yes.

I found references to similar errors, but no easy to follow
solution. One seemed to say that version of Ubuntu that Mint
Maya is based on is no longer supported, therefore no updates.
Another said the source list needs to be edited?

Looking at your original post, I don't understand what you are trying to
do. Mint13 is based on Precise, not Maya. I'm not sure the reasoning
wanting to get the source files. If you are going to use the ppa, you
have no need for them. I would try again this time using the correct
version.

Actually looking at the drop down Maya isn't even listed as a choice.

This is the correct way to add the ppa::

http://ppa.launchpad.net/kamalmostafa/fldigi/ubuntu precise main

and this for Ubuntu-hams

http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-hams-updates/ppa/ubuntu precise main

You are over looking this::

Technical details about this PPA and by not selecting Precise, your
system has no idea what to do but barf.

Thanks Ed,

I followed what the what was shown by clicking on
<https://launchpad.net/+help-soyuz/ppa-sources-list.html>
I later found the other information by clicking on a blank area
of the page below the (Read about installing) link.

I had looked at the sources in Synaptic and figured out that I
needed the info from "Technical details about this PPA" and
added that in the Synaptic source list.

The command line instructions didn't work for me.
"sudo apt-get update" didn't work for me, but probably will now
that I have edited the source list through Synaptic.

I think it is useful to discuss - When should we "Google," and when
should we "ask the list?"

Before starting a new message on a support mailing list, I always ask
myself -

1.) Are there any instructions?
2.) Have I actually read them?
3.) Do I have a suitable test environment to try stuff out?

Then -

4.) Is it something that lots of people may have already ran into?

If so, I absolutely will Google it. First thing to check for in results
- is the answer from 5 years ago, or a relatively recent/current
version? Is the answer from a recognized support forum, or just a guess
from an individual? Is the answer actually for my OS and/or distribution?

It's good to remember that the archives of this list, and usually "the
instructions," are on line and available, and should turn up in Google
results anyway.

If I get no satisfaction, then -

5.) [ on Linuxham ] Is this really a question about Linux, or the Linux
version of a ham radio utility?

6.) Has it likely been asked before? If so, see #4

7.) Is this likely something that only developers can fix?

Hang on, let's not start a search engine war. "Googling" is now a
recognized term in English for searching, just like coke, xerox, and
kleenex are now used as generic terms for soda, photcopies, and tissue
(though Google itself tries hard to discourage it's use as such, and
Microsoft and Yahoo! certainly wouldn't support it's use). Not saying you
have to like it, but it most certainly has joined the vernacular, so
correcting people when they use it is correcting them for violating your
own personal preferences, not for correct usage of English.

I think we're all with you up to the point where the name-calling starts:
"it must be attributed to slick marketing that anyone uses the google
search engine". No need to insult anyone. If Google works for you use
it. If it doesn't, don't. Given that they own 68% of the search market
(and the number two competitor, Bing, comes in a very distant 19%), I think
it's safe to say that Googling works for most people. Anyone who reads the
news should understand the issues, both with corporate tracking as well as
US Gov't tracking, and many people have no problem with the things you've
mentioned, so long as it returns useful results (I'm not one of those
people, but again, that's personal preference). Also note that neither
duckduckgo nor ixquick are actually search engines. They are, at best,
metasearch engines. They get their results from other search engines, and
do little to no actual web-crawling, indexing, or searching in and of
themselves, in much the same way that news aggregator sites (like Google
News or Yahoo! News) pull together news articles from other people who
actually do the research and reporting. And startpage is nothing more than
an pseudo-anonymizing proxy for Google Search. If it's Google's search
results you're not happy with, startpage isn't going to help you. There's
nothing wrong with that (at least legally, else you can be certain Google's
lawyers would have shut it down long ago), but if you're going to point
people to resources, at least be up-front about what you're pointing them
to.

Once you get past Google, Yahoo!, and Bing (assuming you lump Youtube
search in with Google), the fourth most popular search engine (ask) gets
just over 2% of all search traffic. Yahoo! has, at various times done it's
own searching, as well as used Inktome, Google, and Bing as their search
back-end. They currently license Bing/Microsoft for their search results.
This leaves Google and Bing as the only two real search engines in the
marketplace (at least for non-Chinese/non-Russian speakers). One way or
another, no matter what you do, you're likely using their data for your
searches. The best you can hope for is anonymize yourself to some degree
and lessen their ability to profile, track, and categorize you, and to that
extent, sites like startpage are probably somewhat useful (though probably
not as useful as proper use of Tor). When using sites like startpage as a
way to avoid tracking and monitoring, remember that they're prohibited by
law from disclosing any federal (NSA) monitoring they might be aware of in
their network or datacenters, so their "no tracking" claims are likely not
worth the pixels they're written with. At best, "no tracking" means "no
corporate tracking". Today, the search engine market is for all practical
purposes, a duopoly, like it or not. You can either accept that and use
it, or do your best to hide down in the noise, but you can never truly
escape the gaze of Google/Microsoft (and by extension, the gov't) without
dropping off the grid entirely.

I'm with you on the privacy/freedom front 100%. But before you can fight
that battle, you have to understand the enemy. Today, that enemy owns
approximately 96% of the market overtly, and probably most of the other 4%
covertly (again, excluding Chinese and Russian search, which I assume are
not the point of this conversation). None of the three alternatives you
listed change that, as they're not truly alternatives, they're just a false
happy face plastered over the sad one. There is no escape from having your
searches tracked. If you're very very careful, though, it's often possible
to avoid their ability to link your searches with you, as a specific
person. But that takes skill and discipline that most of us don't have
(just a discussion of "proper use of tor" alone could take up half an
encyclopedia volume).

I guess my point is, if Googling works for you, then google. Or use
startpage if it makes you feel a little safer. Just be mindful what you
search for. The alternatives at this point are simply not practical for
most people.

You may be OK with a billion dollar corporate enemy of freedom and
privacy buying their way into your dictionary - I am not.

Search engines are just that.

Google will always = a bad actor in technology for me.

It's not "name-calling" to state facts. Google has been successfully
prosecuted across the world, a major google player used to boast
about their intentions, & they've recently admitted multiple
invasions of privacy via people's private routers, etc.

Facts are facts - even when many people reap small profits from
fringe association with an irresponsible corporation. This is
historically how feudal-fascists controlled the peasants - buy
enough of them off to compromise the rest.

Freedom is lost one compromise at a time.

People are finally waking up ... I hope.

Right on the money, OM... Google is a socialist/fascist outfit, existing
almost entirely through the fascist practice of crony capitalism.

The list is here so hams can discuss and ask things of other hams. If
"Google it" is one's answer to a simple question, then I have to wonder
what one is doing here in the first place.

Directing a fellow ham to a web reference is one thing, directing them
to the hands of socialist/fascist trash who will raid their system for
personal data, invading their privacy for something to sell to
governments around the world is something else altogether.

One does not "google" one uses a Search Engine to Search.

Google is merely one org offering a Search Engine and
theirs has a poor reputation for manipulating results
& they have a poor corporate reputation for invasion of
privacy.

Given the fine alternatives it must be attributed to
slick marketing that anyone uses the google search
engine.

Alternatives include ...

ixquick.com
startpage.com
duckduckgo.com

... and many others.

In these days of increased Orwellian invasion of privacy
and attacks on freedom we all need to learn to think
outside the corporate/government box.
