View Full Version : Warty upgrade fails with error message

January 22nd, 2005, 07:24 AM
Hi, Initially I had some trouble with my /etc/apt/sources.list,so I copied a list from a previous posting.
Ran apt-get update from root terminal,ok.Ran apt-get upgrade,ok.As I am on dial up and the download was going to take 6 7 hours I cancelled the download after about 5 minutes,planning to run it again very early on the following morning.Performed another apt-get update,then ran apt-get upgrade and it just hung on me.Closed down the root terminal and fired up Synaptic ending up with the same result.Cancelled upgrade and this error message appeared.

Could not download all package files

The version of the package that you want to install might be no longer available in the repository. Or there might be problems with the source of the package. Refresh the package list and check the source of the package (e.g. CD or network connection).

This just sounds like a connection error during the update process.
