    [SOLVED] Update Manager and Add/Remove no longer works

    Hi I started using Ubuntu the other week and itś been fine now the update manager times out. If I go to a terminal and type the following

    sudo apt-get clean all

    then

    sudo apt-get update

    I get the following I have changed repositories to main and aus and get the same results.

    Re: Update Manager and Add/Remove no longer works

    Try changing your Download Server.

    System->Administration->Software Sources, under the "Ubuntu Software" tab-> set "Main Server" as your "Download From" server. Click on close button and open your terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.
