Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Network Availability

During install, the package manager is trying to download the packages required to complete the install. What is your network like? Can you describe your hardware, network, and internet connection type? This is all useful (and probably necessary) in order to diagnose your problem.
