System Reports Error
#1
After following along with Joe's video on upgrading to Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3, and after trying to upgrade from Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.2, I get a message telling me to "Install Multimedia Codex".

After I click on the Install, I get a message, first saying "Updating Cache", and then the error message:

"Failed to download repository information "The repository 'https://dl.bintray.com/resin-io/debian stable release' no longer has release file.

I also see a similar type of error, concerning 'https://dl.bintray.com/resin-io/debian stable release' when I type sudo apt update from a terminal.

I checked the man page for sudo-secure(8) as instructed, and it seems that this repository, or maybe this particular file is no longer secure.

How do I correct this?  Or, is this even a legitiment error?  

I see that, my upgrade was not successful, and I still have Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.2.

That ppa is for etcher right ?

It changed the files and you need to update the ppa and if I recall correctly you need a new key also, for the key you can go to software sources/authentication keys and select the old key and then click the import button and it should update the key.

This is the repo I have for etcher in 19.3

deb https://deb.etcher.io stable etcher

Thank you.  Yes, it was originally for etcher.

I will try your suggestions.

I'm a veteran Windows user, and I just don't get the subtleties of repositories. 

I've suggested to Joe Collins to please provide a video that explains everything about repositories, PPAs, and the various apps and systems used by Linux to install new apps, deb, apt-get, synaptic....

Thanks spudnuts,

It seems to have cleared the error.

Most ppa seem to keep the same key and paths so it is something that doesn't happen to often at least in my experience.
