    Hi all.

    I am running the software updater and keep on getting the following error message "Failed to download repository information"

    Any ideas how to solve it?

    Re: Repository Failure

    Hi ockron.

    Sometimes repositories are down for maintenance. If it is urgent, wait a couple of hours and then try again.

    There's an alternative: set the repositories download server that is closer (in terms of pings). Take a look at this tutorial, specially the sub section called 'Best Server'.

    Hope it helps. Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    Note: to get to the 'Software Sources' in 12.04 open the Software Center, and select Edit->Software Sources.
