View Full Version : [ubuntu] Downloading Ubuntu 11 failed

June 5th, 2011, 11:53 AM
Hello everyone,

I have been experiencing problems with downloading the latest version Ubuntu 11 in my current Ubuntu 10.10 operating system.

I used the Update Manager and tried innumerable times but to no avail. It shows that my Internet connection is somewhat faulty. I have no problems with my Internet ironically.

I grudge to download the Live CD into my hard drive and then to manually burn it into a CD because I don't have one available in my hands. Is there any way to download Ubuntu 11 and install it successfully?

Thank you so much for your help!:)

You can download from the mirror in my signature.

Remember to test 11.04 in a live boot before installing.

Why isn't Update Manager working?


It is taking a long time to download.

You can change the server in synaptic package manager from main to something else, or vica versa.

And do use a hardwired connection to the internet for the first sets of updates after installing Ubuntu please.

After that wifi should suffice.

I have no problems with my Internet connection. I have been trying to download Ubuntu 11.04 from Update Manager and that Could not download the upgrades window always appear. Should I manually download the iso. file from Ubuntu and burn it to a cd?

Yes - and do a thorough live test before installing.
