    Unable to install updates.

    Hello All,

    I don’t have any trouble using UBUNTU how ever from several months it stopped installing the updates. The issue is download fail always.

    Re: Unable to install updates.

    Your link is not loading. What version of Ubuntu are you using?

    One reason for updates not installing is the fact that the version being used has reached end of life. When a version of Ubuntu reaches end of life there are no more updates and the software repositories are closed and archived on other servers. So, the URLs in the sources list become inaccurate and error messages are given when trying to update.

    The only versions of Ubuntu still receiving support are 12.04, 14.04, 15.10 & 16.04. Are you using one of those?

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    You had a similar experience way back in 2007: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=411448

    Maybe the same troubleshooting will provide the solution?

    BTW, if you use the forum's attachment facility, viewing images maybe easier. Anyway, here's the image:
