I run Ubuntu 10.04 and everything worked fine until I downloaded bunch of games and programs using synaptic and it stopped working. When I try to install anything it tells me to check my internet connetction which i know works just fine, it says that cannot connect to [my_ip]:8080 and I manually opened the port and nothing, i disabled the firewall and have no proxy running, it also gives me the info that connection(111:refused) What do I do?

You could try changing the server ubuntu uses to get programs from the online repos. Go to system, administration, software sources to change it.

I had to clear System->Preferences->Network Proxy and Restart My Computer Now it all works!
