problems while updating

Postby smakwizz » Mon Aug 05, 2013 8:49 am

I use an asus laptop (K53E) on which i have installed both ultimate edition 3.4 and windows 8. I access the internet via a proxy which requires authentication. I have set the proxy well and both ubuntu software centre and the terminal are working. However, the connection is very slow when using the ubuntu main servers. I am in Kenya. I have to find better server but when i use the "Select Best Server" option in "Software Sources" I get this error
'No suitable download server was found'
'check your internet connection'
Please help.

This may be due to slow proxy. Timeout is activated resulting in the error.
I have a 12mbps connection but i never get 1.5mbps downlink from ubuntu repo servers, its always around 400-600 kbps.
You may haveto manually find and add the server.

Here is the list https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors
HP ENVY 15
•3rd generation Intel(R) Core(TheeMahn) i5-3210M Processor (2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz)

Sorry, I didn't notice that this was the 3.4 thread.

The sources will be "precise" as well.
Code: Select all
deb http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.ke/ubuntu/ precise main

Code: Select all
deb-src http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.ke/ubuntu/ precise main


That is Kenya Education mirror, there is also Liquid Telecommunications..
Code: Select all
deb http://ubuntu-archive.mirror.liquidtelecom.com/ubuntu/ precise main

Code: Select all
deb-src http://ubuntu-archive.mirror.liquidtelecom.com/ubuntu/ precise main
