Bug Description

Ha fallado la actualización. Revisé la lista de paquetes y aproximadamente un 25% se habían descargado correctamente en los demás casos falló.
Desconozco si fue fallo del servidor o algún pico de mi conexión.
De todas formas, durante el tiempo en que he estado actualizando, navege por la web sin ningún problema ni lentitud.

Update failed. I checked the list of packages and about 25% were successfully downloaded in other cases failed.

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.
