Closing error message window


I keep having an error message appear about updating. The question I have is how to close that error message window?
It's so large that I can't seem to resize it in order to see the entire window drag it/resize it. At the moment the only way I can get rid of it is to reboot my PC which is not the best solution.
See the attached image.

Does hitting the Esc key get rid of it?

Failing that, press the Alt key and at the same time drag the window to see if there are any navigation buttons on it.

If you want to address that repository problem (which I recommend), I suggest you open a new thread on the subject.

Hi again hydrurga,

Yup, it was as simple as pressing the Esc key, thanks. I was originally looking for the close window icon in the top right-hand corner, but couldn't get to it.

I've changed the local mirror to update, from one Thai university to another and it's fine now. It had been failing for a couple of days.
