    Re: cant update or upgrade

    The errors suggest a network problem. Is your virtual machine guest connected to the internet?

    Maybe, maybe not--I do not know anything about Tor. The error messages suggest it makes a difference.

    If you're using tor you need to make sure your system proxy is set- go to System Settings>Network>Proxy and be sure to set it there.
    If that doesn't fix it we need to add a line to /etc/apt/apt.conf telling it to use the proxy.
