I have not idea why, but my updates seem to work much better now. I haven't
done anything to correct the problem. I just keep trying the update even if
I do get the error message, and it eventually works. Also, I don't get the
error message every time I attempt to update the computer. I will just wait
for the Karmic update to come out and then update to that and hope for the
best. Thanks for the occasional updates on the problem.
