I installed Ubuntu a while ago. Recently, I ran the following command -
sudo apt-get update
and got the error
Err http://security.ubuntu.com precise-security Release.gpg Got a single header line over 360 chars
I read through multiple discussion forum posts and nothing has been helpful in solving this issue. I am connected to the internet through WiFi. I am able to ping the Ubuntu servers. I am also able to the file servers from Firefox browser. My internet connection works fine.
I'm a rookie user of Ubuntu. So, please be as specific in your instructions as possible.
Given below is the complete error message -
$ sudo apt-get update Ign http: //security.ubuntu.com precise-security InRelease Err http: //security.ubuntu.com precise-security Release.gpg Got a single header line over 360 chars Ign http: //us.archive.ubuntu.com precise InRelease Ign http: //us.archive.ubuntu.com precise-security InRelease Ign http: //security.ubuntu.com precise-security Release Ign http: //us.archive.ubuntu.com precise-updates InRelease 22% [Connecting to server (188.8.131.52)] [Connecting to server (184.108.40.206
"Got a single header line over 360 chars" error message apparently has something to do with Ubuntu 12.04 (according to various discussion forums). Any help in resolving the issue will be greatly appreciated. Being a rookie user, I am not able to figure out all the system details myself to resolve the issues.
