Question Unable to upgrade to ubuntu 7.10, update manager fails to update....

I have tried to upgrade my ubuntu to 7.10, the following message occurs when using the update manager:

A problem occurred during the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry.

Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

The same error appears a number of times. Using a CD copy of 7.10 i tried the following in a terminal:

gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

nothing happens, still a newbie, am i missing something obvious?

Well, it appears to be trying to download packages from a debian server. Can you post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file?
