We are aware of the server problem and we are currently working on it.
The server is up but it cannot satisfy the huge amount of traffic at the moment. It can achieve 1Gbps. At the moment, a few people are downloading the updates very fast while many others are facing timeouts and errors.
We are currently trying to reduce the maximum speed available per connection, to ensure more people can connect to the server at the same time.
If you can postpone your update to later on today or even tomorrow, you’re likely to skip the traffic and to enjoy faster speeds.
Alternatively, you can point your APT sources to a mirror.
To find a mirror near you, visit http://www.linuxmint.com/mirrors.php and scroll down to the “Mirrored Debian Latest repositories” section.
Choose a mirror, open its URL in your browser and look at its “update-pack-info.txt”, if it shows “version=4″, that means the mirror is up to date and you can replace debian.linuxmint.com with the mirror URL in your /etc/apt/sources.list.
The main server was shutdown temporarily and is now offline
4 mirrors appear to be up to date:
http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/linu ... an/latest/ (Australia)

that's one of the problems of mintupdate (and i only realise that a few days ago) it prompts to install and upgrade even if the update process had errors refreshing the repos (something that apt doesn't).
right now you can't really tell if it's safe to reboot or not, it depends of the pkgs that were updated, the ones that were left behind, in what situation exactly is your upgrade process. it can be safe or not.
the best approach is always to upgrade only when you have a clean update.

Just as well I use MDLE as my full time O S and have used Mint as my one and only OS for some time now
I run a business from it
If you fail me now I am ruined No Joke.
