    Re: can't update 12.04

    Hi ,
    your sources list file seems perfect , but I have a query here.. where is the server ? Usually when you install Ubuntu it asks you for the Country and add automatically the appropriate server in your sources.list file.
    eg: for US the sources.list is something like
    Code:
    http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise blahblahblah
    You can try this if you want.
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    and comment out these lines
    Code:
    29    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise multiverse
    30    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise multiverse
    31    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-updates multiverse
    32    deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-updates multiverse
    place this symbol # at the start. Save the file and try again
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    and see if working. Maybe the problem is temporally.

    You can re-enable these sources , by Un-commenting the lines (remove the symbol #)

    Thanks

    NikTh,

    My location is in india.
    /etc/apt/sourses.list was initially set to an indian location.
    I get the same error with this setting as well.

    commenting the lines in sourses.list doesnt work either.

    Hi NikTh

    I ran the update today morning. It seems
    to show a new set of errors today and not
    the usual " E:Unable to parse package file..."

    Please see the results:

    Re: can't update 12.04

    Hi NikTh,

    I followed the instructions in the Package Manager trouble shooting
    procedure step-by-step. However, when I executed the line

    Code:
    LANG=C;sudo apt-get update -o APT::Cache-Limit=100000000
    it gave the same error

    Code:
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
