I have the following problem with my two Ubuntu installations at home: installing software using apt-get or the software center takes AGES, I mean, the download speed is very slow. I have already tried to change the server and other tips found on the web at no avail.
Firstly I thought that was a problem with my ISP, but then I downloaded the DEB files for skype and chrome and both got downloaded at regular speed (340 KBps, I have a 3 mbps connection). All internet pages and services work correctly.
Also, when I was installing ubuntu, I ticked the option to install updates and 3rd party software, what a mistake, it took more than 4 hours for the installation to complete because I had to skip the installation of those files (the installer indicated that 105 minutes were remaining for the installation).
A simple sudo apt-get update takes 20 minutes and the installation of scribus (20 mb download) took 26. As I said before, I have already tried changing server, but the problem still persists in my two computers. Any Idea?
BTW, one computer uses ubuntu 15.04 32 bits and the other 64 bits. Thank you
