  1. Hey I’m not getting anything after I try to add the repos, and after updating, I get these two:

     W: Failed to fetch http://download.webmin.com/download/repository/dists/precise/contrib/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    W: Failed to fetch http://webmin.mirror.somersettechsolutions.co.uk/repository/dists/precise/contrib/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Are they at a different address now?
