Bug Description

system: 12.04 LTS precise
USC version:
software-center:
  Installed: 5.2.2.2
  Candidate: 5.2.2.2
  Version table:
 *** 5.2.2.2 0
        500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     5.2 0
        500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main amd64 Packages

Problem:
I purchased world of goo from the ubuntu store and love the game. I am using 64 bit precise and so far the game has run fine. For some reason the updates through its ppa which are added by software-center are coming up as unauthorized.

Are the commercial-ppa-loaders for world of goo added by software center out of date or is there a deeper problem?

The output when I do my regular sudo apt-get update that is signalling an error when trying to update world of goo is:

>W: Failed to fetch https://private-ppa.launchpad.net/commercial-ppa-uploaders/world-of-goo/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-amd64/Packages The requested URL returned error: 401

>W: Failed to fetch https://private-ppa.launchpad.net/commercial-ppa-uploaders/world-of-goo/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages The requested URL returned error: 401

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

The ppa itself was set up by the software center with the following line extracted by running the following bash code

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list | grep ppa

deb https://private-ppa.launchpad.net/commercial-ppa-uploaders/world-of-goo/ubuntu precise main #Added by software-center; credentials stored in /etc/apt/auth.conf

Hi Gary
I am lost in the labrynth of your bug reportng system and very confused. I
have not been able to get the issue resolved in a month and cannot use the
software at all now after following the recommended steps. Is it possible
just to get a refund and put this whole thing behind me.

Thanks in advance
if there is a more appropriate place to ask please let me know as no one
seems to be responding to the bug thread anymore.

@Munawar you state that you purchased and installed and have been playing the game for some time? There have not been any updates to this application since release so I'm sure that everyone is confused as to where to find and resolve your issue.

IF you are receiving a 401 error on the World of Goo repository, then we will need to reset your subscription. Please reply again ONLY on bug #1008289 with the details of the error and we will resolve it.
