how to Download all the packages and softwares

Hi guys,

I want to have no checks when I am installing some software through Ubuntu Software Center.

Actually, sometimes I get the message that the software comes from untrusted source etc.

I want to be able to install all the stuff that I want to. Is there a simple method to prevent Ubuntu from showing such messages?

Also the system asks me to check the Internet Connections even though i am connected to Internet.

Here's what's in my trusty's /etc/apt/sources.list on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS

My first attempt at a Regular Expression!!!
grep -v "#\+"  /etc/apt/sources.list
shows this on a stock Virtualized install. Nothing fancy.

deb trusty main restricted
deb-src trusty main restricted

deb trusty-updates main restricted
deb-src trusty-updates main restricted

deb trusty universe
deb-src trusty universe
deb trusty-updates universe
deb-src trusty-updates universe

deb trusty multiverse
deb-src trusty multiverse
deb trusty-updates multiverse
deb-src trusty-updates multiverse

deb trusty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src trusty-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb trusty-security main restricted
deb-src trusty-security main restricted
deb trusty-security universe
deb-src trusty-security universe
deb trusty-security multiverse
deb-src trusty-security multiverse

deb trusty main
deb-src trusty main
I suggest you update your /etc/apt/sources.list in a safe manner using those values and re-run
apt-get update
using whatever mechanism you favor.

However, I have some doubts about this environment.
Is this a fresh install of the OS? because the message
"W:Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 14.04 LTS _Trusty Tahr_ - Release i386"
points to a source that should have been modified upon restart of such an installation.
That, or No Mirror was chosen during the install, if that is such an option on this OS. I didn't spin up a new VM to check. Sorry.
