Very slow connection to Ubuntu update/upgrade servers

Recommended Posts

Hi, guys,

I've been recently experiencing extremely slow connections to the Ubuntu servers when I rut apt-get update and apt-get upgrade commands.

I first blamed it either on my Wi-Fi router (Airport Extreme) or unreliable service from the Midco internet service provider.

Then, I noticed that the other devices on the same home network do not have this problem.

Using Chrome web browser on the same laptop that I am using Bodhi Linux (ThinkPad S200x) shows no connection problems as well.

Still, running the terminal with this update/upgrade commands takes forever.

Installing downloaded packages that require some additional components to be downloaded during installation (CherryTree and Atom text editors for example) suffered with the same slow connection and download problem.

Could it be something Bodhi OS related? Should I just wipe out the HDD and do a clean installation?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Maybe the default mirrors that your install is using are slow for you? I don't know off the top of my head how to change the mirrors and what to change them to.

Hi, guys,

 

I have the problem solved. It had nothing to do wih Midori or Linux. I unplugged the modem and the WIFi router for about 2-3 min and plugged them back.

 

Everything started working as before. On the positive side, I learned several tricks with troubleshooting Linux problems.

 

Still love Bodhi.

 

All the best to the Bodhi community. Please keep up your excellent work.
