Hello,

It seems Linux Mint Debian Edition no longer uses Debian testing repositories (and it seems this main repository is no longer maintained: http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest - the latest modification has been made at the end of August...).
So there are two possibilities if you want to use the latest version:
  • you can compile it from the tarball
  • you can add official debian testing repositories:
    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

I don't know why these repositories are not up to date but if there is no good reason (maybe they want to create their own fork), I think it's much better to add this official testing repository (even more if you're using this other repository: deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates)

More details in French (sorry) there: http://www.glx-dock.org/bg_topic.php?t=5766

No sure that will help you mushsup, but it's seem you need to change some repository for the pack 3 of LMDE :
gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Within this file, replace the following:

Replace security.debian.org with debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security
Replace debian-multimedia.org with debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia

Your APT sources, should now look like this:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

Yes but http://packages.linuxmint.com/ only contains extra packages (a few packages modified or added for Linux Mint Ubuntu and Debian edition (Skype, Firefox, etc.)) and http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest seems to be an old mirror of Debian testing (or there is a problem with the interface and maybe they hide a lot of things but ... no )
Even http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security is old (and it doesn't contain a lot of things... Packages.bz2 files seems empty!)

So bad… I was thinking about try this distribution. I search an rolling release easy to use (for me) and not with to much compilations (for my old CPU).
LMDE seems to correspond, but if the repository is no longer maintained, that lose interest.

Yes but it's really strange that this repository seems no longer maintained... Maybe there are more interesting news on linuxmint blog or forums.

Linux Mint Debian Edition is being maintained. It is not using Debian Testing repositories because in order to provide its users with a stable desktop experience, updates from Testing are intercepted, tested by the Mint community and then released to users in a controlled fashion via Update Packs. Update Pack 4 was just recently released. Of course being Debian, advanced users are perfectly able to track Debian Testing proper or even Sid, but at their own peril. I wish you guys had researched this a little bit before going off half-cocked and reporting simply that LMDE is no longer being maintained.

We do not say that! We just say that repos in debian.linuxmint.com and packages.linuxmint.com were not up to date and this is why we concluded that it's really strange that this repository seems no longer maintained and maybe there are more interesting news on linuxmint blog or forums.

But this topic is a bit old and if you have a look to orher topic about LMDE, you will see that yes we know that LMDE is now a fork of Debian (a bit like Ubuntu) and if you want to have the latest version of the dock, the only solution is to compile it by yourself
