Question Failure to install ordinary software from Ubuntu 10.04 Software Center

I am trying to install several of the packages listed in the repositories for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS from the Ubuntu SoftwarecCenter. I get the error message: "The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources."

How can this be...they are in the repository. Doesn't that mean they are authenticated?

By the way, under sources, I selected "Server for the United States".

What can I do to fix this?

Solved it myself

I seem to have fixed it by changing the source to "Main Server"
