Ubuntu new source list change, how can I take it effect? Thanks.
 
Hi Guys:

Originally my ubuntu uses official source list as apt-get update target, obviously it is very slow, these days I find a source mirror in my own region, I want to replace original one with current mirror.

#vim /etc/apt/source.list ##using my own region source list.
#apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

Although everything works OK but when I try to update a new software, it still downloads from original official websites, still slow, in fact it can be much faster if get from local regional.

Anyone who knows please share and thanks in advance.

Does 'apt-get update' report any errors?

Can you attach your changed 'sources.list'?
