Thread: Software Updates

  1. Software Updates

    I was recently notified by update manager that there were several
    updates available for Feisty. When I attempted to download and install
    these updates the four involving Samba got "403 Forbidden" errors.

    I then started up Firefox and navigated to the page that Update Manager
    identified as containing the files that failed to download.

    When I clicked on one of the files Update Manager was trying to download
    I got the following error:

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access
    /ubuntu/pool/main/s/samba/smbclient_3.0.24-2ubuntu1.3_i386.deb on this
    server.

    The full url is:
    http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...tu1.3_i386.deb

    Can anyone tell me what the problem is?

    TIA
    Mike
