Hi,

I installed UberStudent yesterday and have been trying to install a few things from the Ubuntu Software Centre. I keep getting met with an error stating Failed to download package files. Check your internet connection. Under details is the following:
Failed to fetch http://mirror.intergrid.com.au/ubuntu/p ... _amd64.deb 403 Forbidden
Failed to fetch http://mirror.intergrid.com.au/ubuntu/p ... _amd64.deb 403 Forbidden
Failed to fetch http://mirror.intergrid.com.au/ubuntu/p ... -5_all.deb 403 Forbidden

What does this mean? What can I do to fix this? I guess I need to remove this mirror and add another one? (Actually, no idea, I'm newish)

Thanks in advance!

Sarah , have you tried to download using synaptic package manager? Applications>applications finder> (type in) synaptic. highlight it and launch. Then type in the search box for the program you are looking for. hope this helps.

This usually just means that the mirror has a temporary issue. You can wait a bit and try again or just hit F12 on your keyboard and run the following lines, one line at a time, in the drop-down terminal to get a new mirror:
Code:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall uberstudentsources
sudo apt-get update
Then, you should be able to interact with the selected best Ubuntu software repository mirror as you desire.
