First of all, the error message did not accurately tell the problem. I am sure
that whenever I try to update my local machine is unable to download
information from the repository. Is it a bad internet connection? Is it a bad
I tried to switch to a better or as the applications says best server.
I opened the Software & Updates application and switched to "the best

I try to update and it worked well.
I am getting some weird bugs. I use Ubuntu 16.04 and this is suppose to be as stable as they come because it carries an "long term support" designation. Traditionally, they don't introduce new features for lts releases. I can't update packages and I can't upgrade packages. So normally I would just open a terminal and use the command line. Guess what, apt-get is also giving me errors. I hope this is temporary and the fix is well on its way because a bug in the package manager is not something most linux users can get away from. -- Donato Roque @ubuntu1604 mobile#+63-9185721710 I'm on twitter and facebook.
