My system info is as follows

mme@host:~/Downloads$ hostnamectl

Static hostname: host      
Icon name: computer-laptop
Chassis: laptop
Machine ID: 12242323423423
Boot ID: 545435435
Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Kernel: Linux 4.9.0-6-amd64
Architecture: x86-64

When I run apt-get update I get two IGN errors:

mme@host:~/Downloads$ sudo apt-get update
[sudo] password for mme:

Now I'm wondering how to resolve this and if there are any redundancies with my repositories. /etc/apt/sources.list does not include the google repository which I think is strange, too.


The Ign messages aren’t errors, they’re just information. The InRelease file is optional and some repositories don’t carry it.

The Google repository is described in its own file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d.

There doesn’t appear to be any redundancy in your repositories, at least given the output above.
