Ubuntu :: Update Manager Errors - Could Not Connect To Mirror.pacific.net.au:80 (18.104.22.168), Connection Timed Out
Apr 2, 2011
I have been getting these errors while running update manager and I can't seem to find specific information or how to resolve these problems. Was hoping someone could please provide me with some details about why they are occurring so I can deal with them myself next time and how I can go about fixing them now.

I am from India, and I tried to update my Ubuntu system today. Code: $sudo apt-get update The update failed because the connection to the India mirror timed out: Code: [URL] Could not connect to in.archive.ubuntu.com:80 (126.96.36.199). - connect (110: Connection timed out) I tried the update a few times, with the same result every time.
I had firestarter running at this time, and noticed that I would get new security events every time I tried an update. I checked the events list, and it turned out that the machine at the ip address 188.8.131.52 (the in.archive.ubuntu.com machine, to go by the above error message) had been trying to make connections to seemingly random ports on the machine every time I tried the update: see the attached screenshot. I then changed my repositories to the Main Server using Synaptic, and tried the update again (from the command-line). This time it worked without a hitch, and firestarter did not report any unwanted incoming connection. why is the India mirror trying to open connections that the Main server apparently does not need in order for me to do the update? Should I (we) be concerned?
Five days back, i got a notification on top right side mentioning "The update information is outdated. This may be caused by network problems or by a repository that is no longer available. Please update manually by clicking on this icon and then selecting 'Check for updates' and check if some of the listed repositories fail."
So, i go ahead and click it.. it says it is downloading 1 of 19 files and after some time, i get the error mentioning "W: Failed to fetch [URK] Could not connect to 184.108.40.206:3128 (220.127.116.11), connection timed out"
I went into Software Sources and tried different servers from different countries, but there wasn't any luck. I also unchecked the repository that was giving the problem but nothing was getting downloaded from other repositories as well.
I got an update notification from update manager just now and tried to update (internet working perfectly) but before it finishes downloading it gives an error of "check internet connection" constantly
I am relatively new to Ubuntu. Currently running Lucid Lynx, but I cannot connect to the internet. I can ping 127.0.0.1, and google.com. Software update works as well, but the connection times out when I try connecting to a web site e.g. bbc.uk.
I did a clean install of the latest version of Ubuntu. For some reason, there are still internet-issues. When I tried out the following command
Code: telnet open ftp.microsoft.com 21 I got Code: telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
Also, during install of the new ubuntu, it was unable to reach the repos for downloading. Odd thing is that I can go online, and that when I type 'ftp.microsoft.com' in my browser, it displays the file-hierarchy.
I've been trying to ssh out of my home network to school computers and I keep getting:
ssh: connect to host sage.math.washington.edu port 22: Connection timed out
I've tried this on my machine (running Ubuntu 10.04) and on a windows 7 machine (using putty). I have been successful ssh'ing to this machine using either of the laptops from every other network I've tried, so I'm pretty sure it's something about my home network.
OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to server ["address"] port 22. debug1: connect to address "address" port 22: Connection timed out ssh: connect to host "server" port 22: Connection timed out
I suppose this is because I am connecting from a public institute where there is a firewall that is blocking an outbound connection on port 22.Is there anyway I can bypass the firewall using the internet ?
I'm totally new to ubuntu and i have a major problem with updating ubuntu, I was looking around for some linux based gaming and came across the online game called "Regnum Online". I installed it and all goes fine until I restart my computer next day, the top panel that usually has daily updates is missing and in its place is a red circle with an x through it I hover over it with my mouse and it reads: "An error occurred please run package manager from the right-click menu or apt-get in a terminal to see what is wrong."
Which I then right-click and open package manager and it gives the following response: "E: Type '<!DOCTYPE' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/onemyndseye-regnum.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report."
At the bottom of this message reads: "this usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies." I don't want to lose my personal files by wiping and reinstalling ubuntu.
For the past four or so days there have been a few updates for my system (32bit Karmic). I tried ignoring it at first to see if it would go away, but this is the third time I've seen these error messages. Apt Authentication issue
Problem during package list update. The package list update failed with a authentication failure. This usually happens behind a network proxy server. Please try to click on the "Run this action now" button to correct the problem or update the list manually by running Update Manager and clicking on "Check". I click the "Run this action now" button and I get a second error,
W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.GPG error: [URL] karmic Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2 W: Failed to fetch [URL] W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I'm getting the following error every time i run the package manager to install or update etc.. Code: E: nxserver: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Despite the error, apt still works and allows me to install/remove apps. The application in question also works fine too.
I downloaded the first CD Image as instructed at [url] and installed it on my laptop. I would like to install the "Synaptic Package Manager" and a mirror repository so that my system can update.
I have apparently installed " apt-cdrom add" and then typed "apt-get update" and I tried to install the mirror when the system was installed but as the wireless was not connected it apparently did not add the correct details.
Release upgrade ends up with error: "Error during update. A problem occurred during the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry. The server may be overloaded. Restoring original system state". When doing do-release-upgrade -d to upgrade from karmik to lucid. I using local mirror ftp://ubuntu.snacho.ru (also have http that works but not browseable). When I change lines in /etc/apt/sources.list from local mirror to official [URL] all works fine. I don't want to download 1Gb from internet (because of traffic cost). What is wrong with local mirror ? I can communicate with its owner, but what he needs to change on the mirror ?
All of a sudden Update Manager cannot connect to Internet. I just recently fixed a problem I had with playdeb not installing the games due to a internet connection problem (fixed by downloading the script instead of terminal method), this is the only big change I done recently other than downloading documents and pictures.
Here is the detail as to where or why it cannot connect code...
Does anyone know of any download manager that allows you to time your downloads to start off at certain times / hours et cetera? I currently use DownThemAll! as an extension in my Firefox, but I don't think that has such a capability. I would prefer a browser extension, but if there's an application that would do I'd be thankful if you could name it.
I need this so that I time my downloads at certain hours and have them run automatically, due to the fact that my ISP allows some uncharged hours at night which I basically never made use of (but now I have to, as my free data download limit is close to being used up).
Linux printing appeared to be working fine up until yesterday. Today typing lpq gives the following: lpq Printer 'email@example.com' - cannot open connection - Connection timed out Make sure LPD server is running on the server
The /etc/cups/printers.conf file is properly set, the printers appear in localhost:631 and they are printing test pages. However, all command line print commands seem to be trying to print to firstname.lastname@example.org I don't know why printers.conf is being ignored and why and how email@example.com was added. Seems like it might have been auto-discovered?
# dit: firstname.lastname@example.org was mentioned in /usr/local/etc/lpd.conf I'm not sure why lpd.conf is being used instead of /etc/cups/printers.conf
I have updated the system this morning and the vpn stopped working!It gives me an error: invalid secrets.I use network manager to connect to a pptp vpn connection, I use fedora 12.Does anyone know the problem?
I just changed repos back to a standard CentOS base repo due to the custom one I was using needing https, and due to a proxy issue, only have http.When I run yum update, it finds that the path for the mirrors is off slightly giving me 404 errors.

I am not so experienced with networking in Linux. I've successfully installed Red Hat Linux Enterprise 5.2 on a VMware host. When I issued nslookup command, it returns "connection timed out" error as follows:
Code: [root@rac1 ~]# time nslookup rac1 ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached real 0m15.038s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.000s
My questions are: (1) Is that error normal? (2) Is there a way to decrease the 15.038s value? rac1 is the local hostname, so why it takes all that time to resolve it.
Following info may help: Code: [root@rac1 ~]# hostname rac1.mydomain.com [root@rac1 ~]# cat /etc/hosts # Do not remove the following line, or various programs # that require network functionality will fail. 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost #eth0 - PUBLIC 192.0.2.100 rac1.mydomain.com rac1
