My ongoing experiences with Ubuntu, and later Mythbuntu, as a media center with MythTV. I'm also using the system for a virtual machine server, a mediawiki server and a general all around home infrastructure base.

apt-get nautilus-dropbox errors

Hmmm. After upgrading my laptop to 9.04, I'm seeing the following error:
# apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done

The following packages will be upgraded:

Failed to fetch Size mismatch
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

So far I haven't figure out how to solve this. Will post an update here when I have.

Update 5/29/09: I fixed this by installing it manually as follows.
