I am running the software updater and keep on getting the following error message "Failed to download repository information"
Any ideas how to solve it?

Sometimes repositories are down for maintenance. If it is urgent, wait a couple of hours and then try again.
There's an alternative: set the repositories download server that is closer (in terms of pings). Take a look at this tutorial (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu#Download_Server), specially the sub section called 'Best Server'.
Hope it helps. Let us know how it goes.
Note: to get to the 'Software Sources' in 12.04 open the Software Center, and select Edit->Software Sources.
