comment File permissions are d?
On my system, /var/lib/lightdm/.gvfs's owner and group is lightdm, so perhaps you can chown the directory to lightdm:lightdm? Not sure if it's safe to do.

comment File permissions are d?
Does grep '^lightdm' /etc/passwd output a single line that looks like lightdm:x:104:111:Light Display Manager:/var/lib/lightdm:/bin/false

I guess you can stick to the US servers. You can edit /etc/apt/sources.list to change the mirrors if you don't have a GUI.

comment find does not work with my variable
@turbo When you say ls -l returned rwxrwxrwx, was there a d in front of that? Try ls -dl ./your/directory instead.

Or you can always try later.

Open the Ubuntu Software Center, Edit >> Software Sources >> Ubuntu Software tab >> Download from: [Choose your server] (pick something other than the main server, for example).

You already have execute permission on find. I was adding as a FYI that if you want to search a directory, you need execute permission on it, but it seems you already have it based on your comment to the other answer. You can try the command find ./your/directory -not -executable -type d to list all directories that are not searchable.
