    Go into System -> Administration -> Software Sources and switch to another server.
    In the world of Linux, who needs Windows and Gates...

    Got most of my golden beans at an auction on eBay (with a couple of free drinks).

    Thanks, taurus. I've tried a couple but they're not updating. I managed to locate deb's and manually install everyone except libpostproc1d_0.cvs20070307-5ubuntu7.2_i386.deb and I'm having difficulty finding it on any of the servers in the server list. Maybe it'll be fixed tomorrow.

    Same problem here.

    Sit tight and wait for it to be fixed.

    I too received this error, it has happened before a few times. I did what Taurus did, and switched from ubuntu.media.mit.edu server to the "MAIN" server, reloaded depository and the problem is fixed. Must be a delay somewhere in the system for certain repositories getting updates.

    Re: Problem retrieving updates

    I think I'm good. I used the "choose best server" feature, which then decided I didn't need the ffmpeg file updated, and then I chose "Server from United States" and then it worked. I guess the us.ubuntu.com or whatever it is is up now.

    Yes, of course you are good. The world, however, is considerably bigger than the US of A (not meant as a criticism, folks - just a fact).

    The updates came through after being assigned their proper sources - Medibuntu.
