    Unhappy Can't Download Updates

    I haven't done updates for a while. Yesterday I ran updates with my Ubunto 8.04 machine. I had about 80 updates and it took a long time. I'm down to my last 8, but every time the machine attempts to get updates I get the following message:

    W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...tu2.1_i386.deb
    404 Not Found

    I have internet access and all the other updates worked. I'm working as administrator. What is happening?

    Re: Can't Download Updates

    The package may have been updated and it's trying to get the old one that's not there anymore. Try

    Applications>Accessories>Terminal
    and enter
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    then close the terminal after it finishes and returns you to the prompt and go to
    System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager
    click on reload then Mark All Upgrades then Apply
    That should take care of it.
