I was going to install some new software in the Add/Remove program, but as it was reloading new updates, it seems like a few of them failed. Can anyone tell me why they failed, and how I can fix this?

Go into System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager -> Settings -> Repositories and pick another server. Try the main server if you wish. Then, Reload and see if it works now.
