    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    the first one checks for updates and the second installs them

    Re: Update Manager - No Longer Receive Updates

    You may be able to figure out what is going on by looking at any error messages generated when you run the command from terminal. The Update Manager command is:
    Code:
    gksudo /usr/bin/update-manager
    You can also try running these commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    You could also try to open synaptic or Software Sources and change your server in case that is the problem (Synaptic, Settings, Repositories, 'Download from').

    Could you post the exact error message you get?

    Also, are you able to open synaptic and change repositories? (Probably not the problem but you never know...)

    Error Message I receive...thanks

    Could not download all repository indexes

    The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.
