    Is this a Samsung machine?

    The address that you can not connect to appears to be a samsung drivers web-site which was perhaps temporarily unavailable.

    I can get to http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/dists/...-i386/Packages with no problem, but I have no idea why your machine has those update repos enabled unless you did so yourself, or it is a machine pre-installed with ubuntu.

    I have lenovo laptop. I guess these links are for my samsung printe's universal driver. Problem is that due to these unavailable links, other updates cant be aquired aswell.

    You can disable those repos normally from the software-sources application simply by de-selecting them and then updating the repos again. That should allow updating of everything, except those drivers, of course.

    Re: Update problem

    I would suggest that this is definitely the problem :

    Oooops 173.236.28.2 is currently listed in APEWS
    Entry matching your Query: E-505191
    173.236.0.0/18CASE: C-17
    Spambots, zombies, contaminated CIDR, bad reputation providerHistory:
    Entry created 2012-01-09

    It would therefore appear that my UK provider (but not my Spanish one) uses this list and blocks the IP.

    Unfortunately I very much doubt that my provider is going to remove the IP from their list.

    I hate to say it, but it really is up to the web site owner to get it resolved, just the same as if you have a mail server that is blocked.

    Proxy chains is OK, IF you have another server
