View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't switch to UofC software source.

January 16th, 2009, 05:45 AM
I live in Calgary, about 10 minutes from the University Of Calgary (UofC) but when I try to switch to the UofC repository, it gives me a bunch of errors saying it failed to download the new package list.

Here's exactly what I do and what happens:
1. System - Administration - Software Sources
2. click Download From box
3. choose other
4. expand Canada
5. click mirror.cpsc.ucalgary.ca
6. click Choose Server
7. click Close

Then I get a box telling me, "The information about available software is out-of-date."
8. click Reload
9. starts downloading packages
10. I get a box saying, "Could not download all repository indexes."
