I am using Ubuntu 16.04. Whenever I try to run sudo apt update, nothing gets updated, and the output is as follows:

Err:1 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease Could not connect to 213.192.64.75:41258 (213.192.64.75). - connect (111: Connection refused)

No proxy running. No active firewall. Pinging the server in question works fine.

I am also unable to install any software packages due to unmet dependencies. My package manager seems to be completely messed up; not sure if the two are linked in any way so I made a separate question here for this: askubuntu.com/questions/1081041/apt-get-unmet-dependencies

    Are you able to ping in terminal?

  • Please ask about the unmet dependencies in another question. Try to install any package from the terminal and paste the complete error message that you get as plain text. It would certainly be helpful to solve the unmet dependencies error so that you could install nmap.

    ok sure I have a separate question for the unmet dependencies now: askubuntu.com/questions/1081041/apt-get-unmet-dependencies Oct 5, 2018 at 1:29
  • @LostCrotchet What is the current status of this question? Did you ever figure out what was causing the connect (111: Connection refused) error messages? If this question did not lead to a firm conclusion can it be closed as non-reproducible?
