Cannot download packages or get updates

Postby timmyflight on Fri Nov 16, 2007 9:06 pm

Hopefully you kind gurus can help with my problem :D :D
I just installed Daryna today, and I can easily access the internet
via wireless. However, package manager fails to download any
programs (failed to fetch whatever whatever from ubuntu.com),
and the mintupdate also says "could not refresh the list of packages",
and "can not connect to the internet".
Sounds weird, especially since I am obviously on the internet as I write this :shock: Any ideas? :roll:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It was probably just a problem with one of the repositories and ubuntu fixed it. I know that a person in another thread was also having problems connecting to get updates earlier.
