I hope your connection is fixed.
Use the sudo command to become root eg.
sudo apt-get apache2

Have a great Day!

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

The search option works or time out some times, it seems.
Maybe its not to stable on a slower connection?

When I enter the sudo command Im prompted for a password, but when I try to type, no letters appear, and I get invalid operation response...
