ASUS A88x mobo, AMD CPU, Mint 18, 12GB RAM
It struck me as odd that the updater icon had disappeared off the task bar and that I hadn't had any updates since New Year. I found the updater in the menu and ran it but it did nothing after entering my password.
OK, uninstall/re-boot/re-install - easy. No ! "The package 'mintupdate' could not be installed" with the additional information -
Traceback (most recent call last):

Where do I go from here ? It would be nice to have the updates which are almost certainly waiting out there for me.
I just clicked the link in the quote above and it took me to a 404 'Page not found' at the University of Kent. Seems they are not hosting mint any more. How do I point my software manager at a different mirror ?
