    Avec "pas", il faut mettre seulement "de" ou d' (mais jamais "des", "du", "la" ou l').

    Ex : J'ai de l'eau = je n'ai pas d'eau
    Il faut de la moutarde dans cette recette. Il ne faut pas de moutarde dans cette recette.
    J'ai des problèmes. Je n'ai pas de problème.
    J'ai du temps libre. Je n'ai pas de temps libre.

    je pense le correct est "Les hommes ne boivent pas de l'eau". Le verb est 'boire'.

    Les hommes n'ont pas d'eau
    Quando você estiver negando, não usa o artigo partitivo

    "De" alone is an article expressing an undefined quantity (= some) or a part of something OR it is a preposition indicating an origin (from)
    "Le" is a definite article (= the)
    "Les hommes ne boivent de l'eau de la fontaine" is correct because it is a "defined" or specific water (l'). here however "de" indicates the origin of the water (litterally : The men don't drink from the water from the fountain). It is somehow idiomatic.
    "Les hommes ne boivent pas d'eau de la fontaine parce qu'ils n'ont pas envie." d' " is an article expressing an undefined quantity (some, any). (litterally : The men don't drink any water from the fountain because they don't like it)
