    Unable to Update Ubuntu Server 11.10 installed in VMware server 2.02

    Hi,

    I am a newbie here. I have installed Ubuntu Server 11.10(oneiric ocelot) 32-bit in the VMWare server 2.02 on my home desktop(Windows 7 professional 64-bit). After running the setup I ran "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade" and got an error message(attached screenshot).Also I have attached(screenshot) of my sources.list. (sorry don't know how to copy the text from the ubuntu server to my windows desktop.)
    I would really appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Hi & welcome to the forums,

    This error could indicate a network error. Can you ping the us.archive.ubuntu.com server from the Ubuntu VM?

    Code:
    ping us.archive.ubuntu.com
    If not, then try pinging archive.ubuntu.com instead. If that works, then change the references to us.archive.ubuntu.com to archive.ubuntu.com in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

    Save the file, then type:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    Thanks Matt! I was able to ping both us.archive.ubuntu.com and archive.ubuntu.com from the ubuntu vm.
