Hello, i have Lazarus 1.4.4 win32 (in an win64 windows 10 OS) and while trying to update to fpc 3.0.0 i always get an error about asking the fpc sources of the 3.0.0 version!

So can please someone tell me what do I have to do and where do i have to download it from so i can have lazarus with the latest fpc?

Should be a matter of removing laz and fpc altogether and downloading and running the most recent fpcup.
That's the easy way.

Lazarus (i.e. codetools) needs the sources of fpc.
Fpc does not, so they are not included in the installer.
You must download them seperately (follow the link on the download site).

sorry but I can not find the link to download sources and I tried a lot to find it.
Can someone write this link here for me?

There are several download locations. Here is a European one:
