Hi

Helpers please note.

 

Op has a post about this issue on another forum.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/trouble-installing-tails-os-4175611752/

 

While this is not against the rules, it is always best to ask for help on one forum at a time as it saves getting conflicting information.

Here's the guide on how to install Tails, one of the links in your error message. :)

 

https://tails.boum.org/install/linux/usb/overview/index.en.html

 

The other's are '404', meaning these repositories are down & why you cannot install in this manner. If you want to install Tails within your Linux distro, will need to find an alternate way.

 

Note that while some YouTube videos are good, have learned a lot through these myself, there's others that's outdated. You'll need to look for another method of installing Tails to your Linux distro. :)

 

Good Luck!
