When I try to do a apt-get update && apt-get upgrade (or for that matter just an apt-get update), I receive the following on a new Proxmox 4.x build. I need a command to update the sources.lst to the proper repository please.


W: Failed to fetch HttpError401

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
