Wajih Letaief (mawale) said : #1

If you're not behind a router or a proxy you ca go to System > Administration > Software Sources, choose the main servers and try again.

otherwise, you have to configure your network connection to bypass your proxy/router

can you connect to internet in a browser?
If yes just change the server

if not, you have to diagnose your network connection

Hi kangaru,

Have you try another mirror? There are a lot of mirrors of ubuntu. Please take a look at this one:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors

Choose the nearest ones where your connected to the internet. Hopefully it will help you to updates and upgrade your ubuntu.

Cheers..

kangaru (nnganga) said : #3

Wajih, i have chosen the best servers but still the same error appears. I am connecting to the internet well.

Luky, i have chosen the best mirror but still can't get the updates.

This error came after i re-istalled ubuntu. Before i would get the updates using the same network am using.

Cheers!

Rajkumar.R (rraj-be) said : #4

Even though you have selected the nearest mirror, try changing the mirror.

Luky Winarto (luckyborneo) said : #5

Hmmm.. this is weird. Usually, the main servers never let down me. Kangaru question is the same one with this:
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/10408

So, like Wajih Letaief and Rajkumar .R said, try another mirror.

Cheers..
