Issue when trying to install TexLive

Post by guenteranton » Fri Oct 19, 2018 1:40 pm


I am new in the Linux world. 6 weeks ago I kicked out Windows 10 and installed LinuxMint 19. Everything works fine so far.

Now I tried to install TexLive.
I used the following command: sudo apt-get install texlife.
The Error message said (in german):
Verbindung mit konnte nicht aufgebaut werden (, Zeitüberschreitung.
My rough translation would be: connection with could not be set up (; Exceeding time limit.

Ideas welcome.

Thank you for your help.
