    From a terminal run

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    and post the output.

    Re: Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    I've been having similar problems for about 3 weeks in New Zealand. 3 Ubuntu machines all suffer the same problem (2 workstations and a server).

    Re: Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    My problem was with the graphical Update Manager. When I was trying to update using graphical Update Manager, after some time it was showing it could not connect to the internet. Surprisingly, from today morning, it seems that problem has been solved, because graphical update manager works fine and showing that my system is fully updated and no new updates to install.

    I don't know what's the reason behind this problem. Please could anyone tell me what's the reason?

    Thanks.

    The Update Manager left a file in the /partial directory that it was not able to correct as it didn't exist on the repositories.When you ran the "sudo rm" command,it deleted the file that the Update Manager was having problems with,so there was no more problems and Update Manager was able to run correctly.

    This sometimes happens if there is a problem on the download repository or the repository is out of sync with the main repository.

    Usually removing the .list files fixes the problem as the Update Manger has to download a new set of .list files.

    Good Luck

    Re: Ubuntu isn't updating for last 20 days

    Again I'm facing this irritating problem. I wasn't logged in Ubuntu for last 1 week, now I'm back to Ubuntu and facing problem with update. I'm getting the following error message.

    Code:
    W:Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise_universe_binary-i386_Packages  Hash Sum mismatch
    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I need a permanent solution to this problem. Help anyone, please.

    Is there anyone, who can tell me, what's the meaning of this line.

    Code:

    I would be really grateful to him.
