same here, it always take me a long time to make the connection with the server. and often times it gave me a error of saying certain file was not downloaded or such...

There's been a few updates I think the servers are taking a bashing. Try again later.

I just helped someone on the Dutch forum who had the same problem. It appeared that he had the word "web" after some sources in his sources.list.

example:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy main restricted web

Check your sources.list, and remove the word "web" if it is there. Then try again to sudo apt-get update.

I removed all my sources and ran the sources-admin thing and it replaces my list.

Thanks anywhoo =D

That did it for me as well. Thanks!
