    Failed Boot - (amd-microcode - sudo apt-get update fail)

    I am completely stumped.

    I attempt to boot into Ubuntu 12.10, I type my code to unlock the disk, and then Ubuntu fails to load. It is just stuck on the Ubuntu Logo.
    I did CTRL + Alt + F1 and I saw that it had failed to load amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin.

    I have the following AMD hardware:
    AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX640WFGMBOX

    HIS H677FN1GD Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

    So I googled around and found several "solutions" to this issue. However, the most reoccurring solution was to go into recovery and then root and type:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install amd64-microcode

    But when I type in apt-get update I get this and several others:

    W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/di...ty/Release.gpg Could not resolve 'security.ubuntu.com'

    I googled this too but failed to find a solution.


    Am I going about this wrong?
    Can someone walk me through this? I am pretty confused.

    It sounds like the mirror has simply been down when you tried. Does it work now, maybe after switching mirror?
