Update should be using your chosen Malaysian mirror, NOT (US default mirror).

Open Software Center from the launcher (looks like a shopping bag), or press Alt+F2 and type software-center, press enter. Go into Software Sources and make sure it is set to a Malaysian mirror (enter your password when prompted). Then try updating again.
