Try a different mirror. Kernel.org should be pretty fast (unless you're somewhere else other than US).
Now trying advancedhosters.com from this site https://linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=222. Shows will be done in aprox 45mins.

Thanks Schultz

Re: software updater not working

Once you know which version to download, go ahead and download it. Once you got it downloaded, you need to burn it to a DVD disc (a CD disc is too small).
