    Upgrade Manager very slow

    Hi all,

    I just installed a copy of 8.04 and as expected it has a fair few updates to come through. I've been trying to run them from Upgrade Manager and the process seems to cut out after a few seconds, likewise if I try:

    apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade
    From the command line it stalls to being very slow after a few seconds. I don't think this is down to the network as normal web browsing is fine but data does seem to be "bursty" any thoughts?

    Help would be greatly appreciated,

    It depends on what server you are using. Since 8.10 just came out a few days ago, bet everybody is either upgrading their machines or doing a fresh install. Therefore, mirrors will get hammer pretty good. Try another mirror site to see if you get a better speed.
