failed to download MD5SUMS for precise-x86_64.
failed to download MD5SUMS for precise-i386.
failed to get
remote query of failed

however i do have access to the outside world since the curl function succeeds.

Can someone please help??

You may want to try sudo maas-import-pxe-files (for Ubuntu 12.04, 13.10 and 14.04)

You may also want to verify that you do have outside internet. Try to ping an outside server, e.g., ping or any one else you wish.
