Hi all,

I am a beginner of Ubuntu Forum. These days, I frequently got a few errors while updating. But I don't know where to post this. So I put it here. Could any give me some help?
following is the output of "sudo apt-get update".
I am in Singapore, so the server I choose was http://fpt.science.nus.edu.sg. But it seems that when I was installing the system, I select my region was US.

moved to ABT - try changing the server http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9212079&postcount=2

You have a different issue than that - but the way to change the server remains the same.
