Problem with my Ubuntu Update Manager


Hello Laurel

I have experienced the same error. I also did a lot of research for this. It turned out that I was updating that version of Ubuntu for which support had been stopped from the Ubuntu Community. I was using 8.10 for which Long term Support had been stopped a year back. So, depending upon the version of the Ubuntu you are using you may want to check that whether support is available for your version, because the repositories keep on changing with time.

Hope this helps.

Happy Computing 🙂
