Bug Description

I just installed Ubuntu for the first time. When trying to update packages I kept getting errors that it could not connect to ca.archive.ubuntu.com . I Googled this problem and found an answer from 2006 that showed a fix to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change ca to ca2. I made the change and the updates then worked. It looks like the ca.archive.ubuntu.com archive entry is outdated and probably should be updated to ca2.archive.ubuntu.com

I'm closing this bug because it seems like they had a temporary network down.
Additionally, right now, both addresses point to the same ips:

$ host ca.archive.ubuntu.com
ca.archive.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.88.31
ca.archive.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.88.45
ca.archive.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.88.46

$ host ca2.archive.ubuntu.com
ca2.archive.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.88.46
ca2.archive.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.88.31
ca2.archive.ubuntu.com has address 91.189.88.45

Feel free to reopen this bug if the issue persists.
