hi, forum buddies,
why does it take a long whyle to update (the system) the linuxmint 4.02 (with gnome) when installing it? it stopped at 85% and it forgot to grow up.does the ftp archives are so busy? they should improve it.best regards.

:cry:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

1. are you using bittorrent or downloading while trying to update?
2. The servers are busy at times, but I usually get over 100 kbs down while updating and installing software.
3. You could have issues with the network device, or the driver, I would suggest running a speedtest to see how well you fare at that..

Hello,

perhaps is due to your DNS servers. you should give a try to OpenDNS.org

It did work for me.
with a cup of Mint tea.
