    Canadian Update Mirror URL Change?

    Has the URL of the Ubuntu updates Canadian mirror changed? It used to be at http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu, but this no longer seems to exist when I check it.

    If it has indeed changed, where is it now?

    I have just experienced the same thing. I am in a hurry to update a computer for a friend, so I had to use the main mirror (I removed the "ca." from the sources in my list, using synaptic.)

    I guess it is just a problem with the server I doubt they are changing the name. Maybe it is a dns propagation thing, too, if they changed the location of the server?

    Alright; so it's not just me.

    The reason I think the URL may have changed is because I can still interact with the server in a web browser (even downloading from it this way); which I would think means that the server is still running (http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com). There seems to have once been a folder in it called «Ubuntu», but it is no longer there (unlike the regular http://archive.ubuntu.com, which still has its «Ubuntu» folder), hence the repository trouble.

    http://archive.ubuntu.com? Thanks; I'll use that for now.

    I changed my sources.list for apt to work with ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ and guess what... The files are corrupted. Something is happening with the canadian mirror.

    So I guess I'll use archive.ubuntu.com for the time being

    Re: Canadian Update Mirror URL Change?

    It seems the Canadian mirrors are acting up again at ca.archive.ubuntu.com (129.97.134.71). My gutsy distro can't connect to it while it can still reach the security repository @ security.ubuntu.com.

    Any others to confirm this?
