I've recently switched from Windows to Ubuntu since I was windows 7 made my laptop very slow.
I thought updating Ubuntu before I start using it properly would be the best option, but when I start updating, I cannot browse the internet anymore.
The same happens when I'm downloading a torrent or installing an application from Ubuntu s Software Center.
Is there any way to fix this? I experienced same issue in Linux Mint 15 as well. Haven't had this issue in Windows though.
Can somebody help me understand why it happens in Linux?
