I can't update my cache memory and can't install any new software. When I try to update, I get an error saying

Failed to download repository information  
Check your Internet connection. 

But the Internet connection is perfect. Even with terminal, the same error occurs.

Does anyone have a solution?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can you post the exact errors it shows while updating in terminal such as sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade – atenz Aug 27 '12 at 12:52

If the Ubuntu Website does not work for you, then you are probably having the same problem as in this thread.

In this case check my answer there.

This should be a comment, not an answer, and if it's true the question should be closed as duplicated. – Javier Rivera Aug 27 '12 at 17:34
@JavierRivera The key part is "If the Ubuntu website does not work for you..." That makes this an answer to the question, contingent on a detail that is not provided. I might make sense to close this question as too localized, but there is no information as of yet to say it's a duplicate. The OP said, "the Internet connection is perfect," so we shouldn't assume most Internet connectivity is not functioning. – Eliah Kagan Jan 8 '13 at 19:17
