Other mirrors are unreachable.
What's up with that?

some Mirrors are a bit slow to update - - ie: over 24hrs.
:o
so, the LinuxMint Updater suggests that you move to another Mirror.

if there is no prompting - - then Edit - Software Sources - Official Repositories
- then click on each of the Mirrors & select the fastest Mirror for you
then update the cache - - click the Icon in the Top Right Corner

the updater seems to know that a couple kernels are out of date so I let it work on those for a few hours. They updated to 4.4.0.127 and then I put the laptop away. Don't have time for further testing at this time
