    Unhappy virtualbox update manager fails

    Just installed 10.10 under Oracle VM VirtualBox and then installed VBOX additions to clear up monitor issues. Mozilla Firefox works and so does Evolution mail client (needs work though).

    Everything seems to work EXCEPT Update Manager. I consistently get Failure message: "Failed to download package files"
    Here are the details:

    I don't understand what's going on here.

    Help,

    Re: virtualbox update manager fails

    There are no errors showing.Can you now run update-manager and see if the errors are still the same.

    If there are errors try running from a terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    to install any upgrade packages.

    Good Luck

    I don't know what you did but update-manager ran normally for the first time and all would appear to be well.

    I don't know how to mark this as a solved problem on the forum but you fixed it.

    Thanks
