    Ubuntu software center

    I am very new to Ubuntu ( less than 24 hours )
    My os was installed from a cd.
    I was able to download one application.
    Now when I try to download this is the message I get.
    I am connected to the internet.
    I have the correct password.

    Thank you for the assistance.

    Which Ubuntu version did you install? What does the CD say?

    When I got that message, it was because I had a defunct link in your software sources, but it's odd happening when you're trying to download, rather than update a program.

    Welcome to the forums (and to Ubuntu)!

    We can assist you better if you open a Terminal (under Applications, Accessories I believe) and copy & paste the output of the following command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update

    this is the terminal
    I typed in the command.....however, I realized I don't know how to enter the code?
    I am not sure if that is the right word.

    You specified your password when you installed Ubuntu.

    If you forgot your password and need to reset, see here: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword

    Re: Ubuntu software center

    You have installed an obsolete Ubuntu release. All support for Maverick ended in April 2012. http://fridge.ubuntu.com/2012/04/10/...april-10-2012/

    You should do a fresh download and reinstall of a supported release (12.04 if you prefer long-term support; 13.04 if you want the latest and greatest but shorter support) following the easy 1-2-3 instructions at ubuntu.com.
