Every time I try to upgrade ubuntu, it gives me forbidden access. Every time that happens, Ubuntu crashes.

I tried to contact the internet provider but there is no support from their side. I don't have a vpn account.

Is there another solution?

  • Avinash Raj , am not using any proxy. – Ahmed Al-attar Mar 12 '14 at 14:14
  • It seems like you are maybe behind a transparent proxy or something. Have you tried to open the failed URL in a browser for example as well? – dobey Mar 12 '14 at 14:25
  • hello , yes ive tried and its blocked from my ISP Provider. – Ahmed Al-attar Mar 12 '14 at 14:29
  • i even tried to add proxy , but i dont have root permision : hs@SkyNet:~$ sudo -i echo 'Acquire::http::proxy "";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf bash: /etc/apt/apt.conf: Permission denied – Ahmed Al-attar Mar 12 '14 at 14:38
  • Have you tried using a different mirror? You should't use that one unless you're in the US anyway. – terdon Mar 12 '14 at 14:39
