    Re: virtualbox

    Close Synaptic. Close Update Manager. Close Add/Remove.

    Open a terminal and paste in these commands
    Code:
    wget -c http://www.virtualbox.org/download/1.5.2/virtualbox_1.5.2-25433_Ubuntu_gutsy_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i virtualbox_1.5.2-25433_Ubuntu_gutsy_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install
    If you get any error messages, copy and paste them back here.

    Sounds as if you have some kind of network configuration issue. I don't know much about proxy settings, unfortunately.

    Re: virtualbox

    You can go to the Virtualbox website and download the pckg for 7.04. It's still available. Then follow the rest of the instructions with the correct filename you downloaded. Or, you can get the right name, and edit the instructions and still use wget.

    But, you still seem to have a proxy or network problem. Can't help on that.

    Go to: http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
