    Thumbs down Frustrated trying to update packages

    Hi,

    I am trying to move from windows to linux. And so far I am really confused with the process of installing new softwares in ubuntu.

    Trying to update packages but it doesn't work. when I try to update synaptic update manager , I get the following errors :-

    Could not download all repository indexes

    The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.

    Your DNS is not resolving names correctly. Check System -> Admin -> Networking -> DNS tab and add the DNS server IPs suggested by your ISP.

    If you are not sure, you may add these to the list
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    4.2.2.1
    4.2.2.2
    See opendns

    You may want to disable IPv6. Reboot for this change to take effect.
