If you are running either any of the Buntus (e.g. ubuntu, kubuntu, lubuntu), including Linux Mint, you may have had Medibuntu in you repositories for things like the DVD decription library (libdvdcss2) and other proprietary codecs. Medibuntu was not a distribution but referred to Multimedia, Entertainment, and Distractions in Ubuntu, referring to the types of packages it stored and made available. That repo has now shut down, my first hint of which was the following message on an "apt-get update".
