I have recently installed ubuntu 11.10. But when i try to install a software it tries to 'updating cache' but after a while, it stops, showing:

                         Failed to download repository information
                          Check your internet connection

so, now i am totally unable to install any software in my ubuntu.

Please,let me know how to solve the problem.
