    Red face Can't download Restricted Extras on 12.04.1

    I'm trying to install Ubuntu Restricted Extras via Software Manager and terminal but I'm failing. It started to download. I then went out for a while and on return I saw the download failed.

    This is what I'm getting when trying to install:


    "To install ubuntu restricted extras, these items must be removed:
    Libav codec library
    Libav utility library"

    There's a continue anyway button. I click that, the download starts and stops right away giving me this error:

    Please check your Internet connection:

    Failed to fetch http://bd.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...0219-1_all.deb Size mismatch


    What the heck? I am connected to the Internet and my browser and other apps (oDesk Team) are working nice.

    What am I missing?

    ah,

    Change the download source to main server or other. To do that from Software Center--> Edit-->Software Source, from there Ubuntu Software Tab Download From, choose your server.

    Thanks!

    I didn't really need to do that, though. Apparently it was Qubee. I activated VPN and it worked.
