So I just updated to Hardy from Feisty and for the most part every thing's working.
However! *DUM DUM DUM!!!!*
When I try to run the updates, it freezes. Not the whole computer, but just the update screen.
Any ideas? Patches?
I'm kind of a n00b so please be gentle.

Cheers

maybe its just the gui updater. try running:

sudo apt-get update

then:


sudo apt-get upgrade

It is usually not recommended to "skip" releases when updating. You'd better update first from Feisty to Gutsy, and then to Hardy (or better yet, do a fresh Hardy install if you can afford it).

Sorry, I meant I had the version just before Hardy.

I tried that and this is what I got:

corey@Domo:~$ sudo apt-get update
sudo: unable to resolve host Domo

Any Idea?

Its probably server overload/freeze in anticipation for the official hardy release.

You could post your sources.list however hardy is still listed as in development-that is it hasn't been officially released yet (checked at 4-24-08 12:10AM EST).

Please paste the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list.

Ok, it's getting better now, not fully working, but getting closer.
Now, when I try to download the updates this is what I get:

Could not connect to ca.archive.ubuntu.com:80 (129.97.134.71). - connect (111 Connection refused)

What does that mean?

Its probably server overload/freeze in anticipation for the official hardy release.

i agree with sunny.


today due to deciding to repartition my two HD's (and wanting to switch to xubuntu 8.04 now that its official)

i had to update my system after installing it, and the update downloads were painfully slow.


i wouldnt worry about the ubuntu servers, like sunny said, its probably just full to the brim with people wanting 8.04

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Thanks! But in my playing around I managed to fix it. Just had to switch the software sources to download from the main server rather than Canada.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!
