Is this acting weird for anyone else? The same thing is happening on update manager as well. When I go to either do an update or install a new program, it sits at downloading file 2 of x for like a good minute, then finally finishes, albeit slowly. I'm thinking this may be due to server loads for the new release, but Id figure id check to see if anyone else is having the problem. It was working fine a couple of days ago
I am running 8.04 Hardy.

Worth noting: I did install and use my Moto e815 as a dialup connection for a short bit, but am currently not using it, so I doubt that would have anything to do with it.Everything else web oriented is running normal.

yep had the same problem. I am in the uk and it seemed that all the translation-GB packages aren't available.

Also in the repositories dialog, there is an option to search for the best server, this helps a lot!

Now the update of the repos is a lot quicker...
