This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to run sudo apt dist-upgrade and I am am getting an connection error. It is trying to update the package fwupdate.

Is this because the server is just down, or is there another problem with my system that could be causing this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Your mirror is Department of Computer Science - Memorial University of Newfoundland. Perhaps it is down? Try a different mirror would be my first guess. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jan 29 '18 at 1:11
  • I'm not sure if there is ocean floor Fibre between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia but assuming there is any mainland Canadian or Eastern US Seaboard mirror should be fine for you to use. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jan 29 '18 at 1:31
