Unable to connect to dist1.800hosting.com:http: [SOLVED]

Post by BigAngry »

I recently started getting this error whenever trying to use apt-get or the linux updater.
Below are some errors that I see:
Err:1 http://dist1.800hosting.com/ubuntu xenial/universe amd64 libopenjfx-jni amd64 8u60-b27-4
E: Failed to fetch http://dist1.800hosting.com/ubuntu/pool ... -4_all.deb Unable to connect to dist1.800hosting.com:http:

E: Failed to fetch http://dist1.800hosting.com/ubuntu/pool ... _amd64.deb Unable to connect to dist1.800hosting.com:http:

Could not connect to dist1.800hosting.com:80 (69.41.160.45), connection timed out
I'm clueless as to how to resolve this problem or why it started occurring. Everything was fine last week.
After searching online for several days I wasnt able to find any solutions. Anyone have some suggestions? This is causing me a lot of trouble.

Oh man I have a habit of figuring out problems a few minutes after I give up and ask for help.

Apparently I can change my xenial source. I also had a theme that was using an opensuse repo.
The below repo has an expired key which the developer didnt bother to update (from the theme I think)
http://download.opensuse.org/repositori ... ntu_16.04/

I went to the software sources and did a few things.
1) Changed my xenial mirror
2) unchecked that key.
3) refresh

Everything works great now.

I checked it with one of the "is it down for everybody or just me" sites. It is down for everybody.

Channing the mirror worked for me. I changed the mirror in the update manager window.

Thanks
