Question apt-get Problems Going CrAzY


Hey all for the last 3 days I have been having some troubles with some of the ubuntu repositories and it is killing me at work. I have to build a few boxes and the customer wants Ubuntu. I cannot get some of the applications and I might have to go to Debian. Is/Has anyone had any problems with some of the Ubuntu repositories??

I cannot show you all my apt repositories or the output from apt-get update because of the 5 post url rule here.


Thanks.

Without any information it's hard to figure out, what your problem is, but you will find a working (at least for me) 'sources.list' here:

...don't forget the:
Code:
sudo apt-get update

I noticed that some times it works but other times I have problems with the default repositories. I hope that this is not my isp or routers at work.

Thanks again

Maybe you want to try some mirrors. Sometimes a ftp-repository works where http fails. Try around 'til you find a fast and stable one:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Archive
Simply switch the URL between "deb" and the "breezy", "main", "restricted", "universe"... -stuff of the entries in your 'sources.list'

apt-get problems

I am having what sounds like the same type of problems with apt-get in ubuntu, but nothing i have tried has worked. I have tried changing the source.list file and clearing the apt cache. For the most part it says i cant load the sorce sites but that varies when i change my source.list. The thing that stays constant is that it is trying to download some i386 packages and all this started after i upgraded the bios to i686 as I am trying to build a myth box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tyson

These websites should present all the data that you might need considering your current dilemma. The first website presents allows individuals create a repos list. The other website will help with the configuration of your box.
