I have just setup the latest verion of ubuntu on my Dell. I am unable to install software from the Ubuntu Software Centre. When I try the following command on a bash terminal:
"sudo apt-get update"
I get the following error returned:
Could not connect to extras.ubuntu.com:80 (126.96.36.199), connection timed out
I tried configuring my proxy settings using the following:
This did not solve anything. I am wondering if the problem is that I cannot connect to a sofware repositary due to the proxy settings or for some other reason. Any sugestions would be much appreciated.
