Go to your Software Sources, select Download from = Other, click Select Best Server. See what comes up. Use that for some time, until the connectivity issues "resolve themselves". :roll:

To get the fastest repo mirror in LMDE you have to make sure that the package mint-debian-mirrors is installed.

Then you have to run the following in the terminal:
Code: Select all
mint-choose-debian-mirror


This will show you the various mirrors with their speed starting with the fastest from the top if i remember correct. Select that one and you should be good to go.
