If you’re using Blackbuntu nowadays you might have found the following error lines when you execute apt-get update:

W: Failed to fetch http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/dists/maverick/main/source/Sources.gz 404 Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/dists/experimental-maverick/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

The thing is that maverick is not longer supported in the tor’s repositories and it’s been replaced by lucid. So we have to do the same in order to fix it:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Now go to the TOR repositories section and replace the following lines:

# Tor Project
deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org maverick main
deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org experimental-maverick main

with these lines:

# Tor Project
deb-src http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org lucid main
deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org experimental-lucid main

Now finally execute:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Done.

Enjoy!
