View Full Version : [ubuntu] at.archive.ubuntu.com is REALLY slow

April 27th, 2012, 08:28 PM
usually updates from at.archive.ubuntu.com are really slow (from several locations) and I always change the server to ubuntu.inode.at.
I am currently installing 12.04 and installing the third-party programs takes ages.
I am downloading at 20KB/s.

How can I change the destination server during the installation phase?
Can someone redirect or remove this at.archive.ubuntu.com-host entry? Slow mirrors do not make sense.

I can hardly convince anyone of using Ubuntu if it takes hours to simply install it...

Thanks, GaXi

Hi gaxi.

We are all experiencing slow repository responses right now. A lot of people are either installing 12.04 (which usually requires access to the repositories), or upgrading to it.

If nothing is urgent, I would wait a day or so.

Just my thoughts.
