    Unable to update via apt-get, aptitude, synaptic or update manager

    All of a sudden my connections to the repositories are being refused. I have changed various settings in the repositories etc. No joy. Fire wall is off in the router. Unable to update via apt-get, aptitude, synaptic or update manager. Did searches on the problem and found nothing that helped. I just don't know where to go from here.


    Any help is appreciated.

    Have you tried changing servers under Software Sources? Could be the current one is down.

    Tried

    sudo apt-get -f install

    in the terminal to make sure nothing is broken?

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list No irregularities that I can see.

    sudo apt-get -f install No fixes needed according to cli.

    Thanks for the replies.

    When you do an apt-get update are you getting error 404?

    My apologies for the delay. I was seriously sidetracked. I am still unable to update upgrade my system.
