I have set up a local mirror of Intrepid for my company, using the excellent apt-mirror tool. Is there a way to get/force update-manager to use this mirror instead of defaulting to us.archive.ubuntu.com?

Thanks!

Solved my own problem - the method detailed here worked great:

Summary:

Add your local mirror to the appropriate section of /usr/share/python-apt/templates/Ubuntu.mirrors

Select your local mirror in Synaptic (anyone know how to do this without a GUI?)

Upgrade!
