Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So, I have the cd-version (32bit, no media or other stuff) version of Mint Lisa.
My internet works fine, I currently have DSL and not 100% sure of the speed... it's one of the 'middle' speeds. Not slow, but not $$$$ to surf the net and catch the occasional Youtube time wasting session. I'm pretty darned sure I have no network issues.
Anyways, the system update "shield" near the clock has the green check mark ("everything is up to date") but when I try to refresh the list for new updates, I click on "show individual files" and many of them say "FAILED".
After it goes through checking for updates, I get the following message...
Could not download all repository indexes
The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.
Below that in the "details box" for lack of a better term, it lists all of the updates that failed.
EDIT: now the "updates shield" now has a red X in it... says "could not refresh the list of packages". Hmmm, maybe it finally figured out it wasn't working.

The server hosting the repository may have an issue. Give it a day and try again when the server maybe back on line. Or you can also check with the distribution's web site for mirror status and additional options.
