I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and excited to head off to 10.10. The problem is when I tried to perform upgrade using update-manager -d, when all but the last file were all downloaded, suddenly the update manager failed to download the file http://ftp.udc.es/ubuntu/pool/universe/o/orc/liborc-0.4-0_0.4.5-1_amd64.deb When I went to http://ftp.udc.es/ubuntu/pool/universe/o/orc/, I could see the liborc-0.4-0_0.4.5-1_amd64.deb is actually listed here, but it unavailable when I tried to click on it. Have any one encounter this before? How can I work around it?

Try changing the update servers and try again alt text


When Update Manager asks for whether it should perform a Partial Update or not, select No and then choose Upgrade in the next Dialog. Ubuntu will then update as much as possible. After that, you can switch to a different server.

I cannot change it. The source will be automatically reverted to 'Main Server' –  Phuong Nguyen Sep 24 '10 at 5:37
    
There should be an option to automatically select the best server, use that @Phuong –  Sathya Sep 24 '10 at 6:24
    
It doesn't matter which server I choose. Dist-upgrade will always pull stuff from Main Server. –  Phuong Nguyen Sep 27 '10 at 8:55
    
It's interesting. When UpdataManager ask for whether it should perform a Partial Update or not, I select No and then choose Upgrade in the next Dialog. Ubuntu will then update as much as possible. After that, I can switch to a different server. I think you can modify your answer to include this notice and then I will mark it as an answer. –  Phuong Nguyen Sep 28 '10 at 2:49
