I have had ubuntu for a couple of days now, and have got on well so far, but i have been putting off a slight issue till now
I cannot use update manage to update
When i choose update, it gets to 43/70ish packages, it hangs and gives the following message:
By the way, i do not have proxy settings specified and i definately have fine connectivity, as i post this now from ubuntu linux.Code:Could not download all repository indexes The repository may no longer be 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 ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

The main reason why i want to use this as i need to install codecs for rhythmbox so i can play music direct from my ipod or hard disk windows partition [im dual booting ubuntu and XP]
When i change from UK updates to main server updates and try to update again, it can see about the indivudual packages, and they all seem to say that the cant download because of a 403 Forbidden error.
