The computer is connected to the internet, i enabled all restriceted repos, i did everything the same as my first install and that worked and almost everything just like the second time i installed it for someone. Thanks

the servers seem to be down if i'm not mistaken.

those links can be pasted into your browsers address bar


Not Found

The requested URL /ubuntu/dists/intrepid/partner/i18n/Translation-en_US.bz2 was not found on this server.

edit: i refreshed and some of my sources have failed
