    Ubuntu not updating correctly - Failed to download packages check internet connection

    Hi,

    I'm having an issue with Ubuntu 12.04 at the moment whereby it takes a while to log in because it is opening update manager (96 updates) and when I try to update it, I am greeted with the message 'Failed to download packages' and 'check your internet connection'.

    I am definitely connected to the internet, as I am posting this now.

    I've posted the details below:

    Failed to fetch http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...0.14_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 194.169.254.10 80]
    Failed to fetch http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...0.14_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 194.169.254.10 80]

    Failed to fetch http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool

    Does anybody know what the remedy for this is?

    Many thanks.

    Can you post your sources list.
    From a terminal.
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    ]Ok. From terminal again

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    Post back any errors.

    It seemed to work from terminal, the only thing I could pick out as an error was this:

    W: Duplicate sources.list entry cdrom://Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release amd64 (20130213)/ precise/main i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/Ubuntu%2012.04.2%20LTS%20%5fPrecise%20Pangolin%5f% 20-%20Release%20amd64%20(20130213)_dists_precise_main _binary-i386_Packages)
    W: Duplicate sources.list entry cdrom://Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release amd64 (20130213)/ precise/restricted i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/Ubuntu%2012.04.2%20LTS%20%5fPrecise%20Pangolin%5f% 20-%20Release%20amd64%20(20130213)_dists_precise_rest ricted_binary-i386_Packages)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems


    I would run sudo apt-get update again but it would just show the same thing once it was done.

    Yes you have a duplicate for the cdrom. I would remove one from software sources.
