moin moin Mark,

if the simplexsolutions repo is in its own file, then you can ignore it
for updates. Admittedly, this is one of the few things that's actually
easier with yum.

Here's what I use to get only security updates. You can certainly do
something similar to exclude one file rather than including just one file.

sudo apt -o Dir::Etc::sourceparts=:: -o 
Dir::Etc::SourceList=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/security.list dist-upgrade

ciao,

I am getting this error when I try to apt-get update

Reading package lists... Error!
W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is
not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error:
http://apt.simplexsolutionsinc.com wheezy InRelease: Clearsigned file isn't
valid, got 'NODATA' (does the network require authentication?)

W: Failed to fetch
http://apt.simplexsolutionsinc.com/repository/dists/wheezy/InRelease

W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones
used instead.
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList
/var/lib/apt/lists/apt.simplexsolutionsinc.com_repository_dists_wheezy_main_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

When I try to do an upgrade or install I get

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Encountered a section with no Package: header
E: Problem with MergeList
/var/lib/apt/lists/apt.simplexsolutionsinc.com_repository_dists_wheezy_main_i18n_Translation-en
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

I emailed the support folks at simplexsolutionsinc.com (the provider of my
VPN) to see if they can fix the errors at their end.

I assume I could uninstall the VPN from simplex solutions and remove the
ppa from apt, do the upgrade and install the software I need, and then
reinstall the VPN.

Is there another way for me to move forward and do an upgrade and some
installs without removing the VPN software?

Thanks!

Mark
