It could be that you have missing dependencies or there is a problem with the update mirror you are using. Try the following: Go to easyurpmi and setup the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos. After that, simply do
Code:
#urpmi --auto-select --auto
or use the GUI tool to update the system.

To keep your sources up to date, remember to run the command below regularly.
Code:
#urpmi.update -a

Installation failed, some files are missing:
- ftp://ftp.uio.no/linux/MandrivaLinux...007.1.i586.rpm
- ftp://ftp.uio.no/linux/MandrivaLinux...007.1.i586.rpm
- ftp://ftp.uio.no/linux/MandrivaLinux...007.1.i586.rpm

Maybe you should update your mediadatabase.

Errors reported:
...download failed: curl failed: exited with 28

...download failed: curl failed: exited with 19

...download failed: curl failed: exited with 56

Could it be because I'm using a Sattelite-connection when I try to update or install?

It seems like its a problem with the mirror you are using. I would replace the mirror for the main and contrib repos.

I have had similar issues in 2007.0. I simply logged out then back in and the trouble vanished. I was unable to establish a procedure to dependably reproduce the problem so I could not report a bug. I have not detected this trouble in 2007.1 so I believed it to be fixed with the new software management tools. If you can develop a procedure to dependably reproduce the problem, perhaps you can make a bug report.

Have I got the wrong architecture for my CPU?

In that case, can I quickly transport from i586 to 64?

My friends computer seems to have a 64-bit CPU.

CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 4000+
AGP: Seems to be a K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Miscellaneous Control.

Kristoffer G,
I have a 64-bit CPU and am running 32-bit Spring. I tried the 64-bit release and Firefox wouldn't even start so I installed the 32-bit and all is pretty fine. Your fiend might have a 64 bit CPU but that doesn't mean he's running 64-bit Spring.

you can also try the command line urpmi namepackage --wget (or in the gui there is an option to use wget instead of curl). Not sure it will help much, but worth a try
