View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem retrieving updates

March 16th, 2009, 11:34 PM
I tried using synaptic to update the following packages but I get the following error:

W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/f/ffmpeg/libavutil1d_0.cvs20070307-5ubuntu7.2_i386.deb

Anyone else having difficulty reaching repositories?

Go into System -> Administration -> Software Sources and switch to another server.

Thanks, taurus. I've tried a couple but they're not updating. I managed to locate deb's and manually install everyone except libpostproc1d_0.cvs20070307-5ubuntu7.2_i386.deb and I'm having difficulty finding it on any of the servers in the server list. Maybe it'll be fixed tomorrow.

Same problem here.

Sit tight and wait for it to be fixed.

Same problem at 1746 pdt. Swithced to denver server and then back to usa server and the upgrades went through.

I too received this error, it has happened before a few times. I did what Taurus did, and switched from ubuntu.media.mit.edu server to the "MAIN" server, reloaded depository and the problem is fixed. Must be a delay somewhere in the system for certain repositories getting updates.

I think I'm good. I used the "choose best server" feature, which then decided I didn't need the ffmpeg file updated, and then I chose "Server from United States" and then it worked. I guess the us.ubuntu.com or whatever it is is up now.

Yes, of course you are good. The world, however, is considerably bigger than the US of A (not meant as a criticism, folks - just a fact).

The updates came through after being assigned their proper sources - Medibuntu.
