Repository update failed!
 
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 in VirtualBox on Windows Vista and had Refreshed in Synaptic Package Manager, then received this error:
Code:

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.

Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...ty/Release.gpg  Something wicked happened resolving 'us.archive.ubuntu.com:http' (-5-No address associated with hostname

And a longer list of paragraphs like the last one.

Are you getting to the internet?

Hello,

I would check your internet connection, along with connectivity and verify that everything is working correctly. I also recommend that you try the following from the command line, and post any errors and warnings that you get:
Code:

sudo apt-get update
Cheers,

Josh

I ran sudo apt-get update, I didn't get any errors or warnings, and then could Refresh the Package Manager.

Thanks corp769!
