The default server for Taiwan has been down for a while.

So many newbies asked in why they could not install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS successfully? Is it hard to change the default download and update server when one install Ubuntu with live CD?

Where can we report this serious and urgent default server failure?

Please see this forum thread for reference.

The easiest way to overcome this problem is to select a different location when installing, preferably, something geographically close to Taiwan. After the installation, you might need to change the time zone and location, as well as the archive server. is provided by the "National Taiwan University", so if you wish to report the downtime, please contact that establishment.
