View Full Version : [all variants] Updates failing..

October 30th, 2008, 04:02 AM

I went to update my machine today to notice that it is failing to download the package information. Most of the packages that seem to fail are "Translation-en_US" files. Still, there are many others that fail. Any reason? I am on 8.04.1 btw.

Try a different serve, I get the same thing that the translation lists don't load. To change the server you download from go to System-->Administration-->Software Sources and change the download from to Main or select other then click the best server button.

This is what I get as far as errors go. Even if I change the server.

If you are not using these repo's you could disable them in your sources.list or from Software Sources.
