How do I change ca.archive.ubuntu.com to ca2.archive.ubuntu.com at the command line


I am at this point: root@ken-desktop:~#

When I try to install my missing files I get a message that says ca.archive.ubuntu.com cannot be reached and I should try ca2.archive.ubuntu.com or another archive that will work. How do I change to this from this command line: root@ken-desktop:~#
I have been reading most of the day and still cannot find out how to do this.

Type
Code:
vi /etc/apt/sources.list
And make the changes in the file
Take a look at

for some basics at vi
