can`t able to update


hi. I cant able to update using update manager. I have change the sources.list a few times, but it still gives the same problem.

THe update manager shows this:
Could not download all repository indexes

The repository might be no longer 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 the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.

ttp://security.debian.org/dists/stable/updates/Release.gpg: Could not connect to security.debian.org:80 (128.31.0.36), connection timed out
ftp://debian.fastweb.it/debian/dists...g/Release.gpg: Could not connect data socket, connection timed out

Hi,


From the command line try with:
Code:
apt-get update
Sometimes the servers are in maintenance so you could see that error, if apt-get update show you any errors, post them here.
