    Re: Cant update

    it sound like you changed something in your /etc/apt/sources.list

    I think if you go to System > Administration > Software Sources

    If you change the "Download from" to a server closer to you if would work
    again.

    And if you want to fix your sources.list here is a sources.list of the main ubuntu servers.
