    Dell Update

    I have an EEE and a Dell Mini 12 both running Ubuntu. Suddenly, for no clear reason and after no system alterations, the Dell gives me a message that it cannot download all reppository indexes to do an update. The EEE updates just fine.

    Is this likely to be a problem with Dell's server, or should I be looking at something on the Mini 12 (or should I just wait and see if it is the kind of problem that can fix itself)?

    I got the message "Could not download all repository indexes" (I have corrected the wording in the original post). I guess Dell has its own Ubuntu repository.

    Re: Dell Update

    It's probably a temporary problem with Dell's repository servers.

    Might take a day or two to get sorted.
