How to change mirror download adress


Hello,
I'm trying to download KDE( "apt-get install kde-desktop", "apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"), but the installation is aborted with the message: "unable to solve 'br.archive.ubuntu.com' ".

I think that I have to change the mirror adress to complete the installation. Is it correct?

See your /etc/apt/sources.list file. That's where the list of repositories is located.

You may want to read this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Kubuntu

Proceed with caution. You may wish to back up your existing sources.list before making any changes.

I'm guessing that KDE might not be in the regular Ubuntu repos because of the existence of the Kubuntu flavor of Ubuntu, but that's just a guess.
