  • You have Internet access? Can you provide the contents of the files in /etc/update-manager ?

I had the same problem yesterday. Try changing your download server in Software Sources to a different one.

To do this, open the Ubuntu Software Center, click Edit > Software Sources, and select a different (better) server in the Download from drop-down menu.


Have you tried running update-manager -d?

  • i did try update-manager -d but no chance...! Any other idea?
