    Upgrade to Hardy

    Here's the problem I'm having. I'm trying to upgrade from gutsy to hardy through the update manager, but every other time i go in it disconnects me at the second step "setting new software channels" (the 1st, 3rd, etc times it has come up with an error stating I could not connect to the release notes).

    I am able to connect to the net through firefox, amsn, deluge, but getting connection errors during the update process. Any ideas?

    Here's the error I get:

    Failed to fetch http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...dy/Release.gpg Could not connect to ca.archive.ubuntu.com:80 (129.97.134.71), connection timed out
    Failed to fetch http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...tion-en_CA.bz2 Could not connect to ca.archive.ubuntu.com:80 (129.97.134.71), connection timed out

    Testing the waters. Liking this, but also struggling.

    the ubuntu repo's are swamped, so it cant get to the updates
    you can either, wait a day or 2 for them to get back to speed
    or download the hardy alternate cd and use that to upgrade

    (you cant do a cd upgrade with the desktop/live cd)
