"automatic" updates not working?

I have been playing around with Ubuntu (one box has the desktop, the other
the server) for a couple of weeks.
I have LOTS of questions, but generally have gotten the system to work
well and am impressed.
One question I want to ask now is regarding the system updates. When I
log in, it tells me that there are updates. When I try to go through
installing them, it tells me that it can't connect to the server to
install them. I have the same problem trying to populate the list of
possible program updates.
I am running broadband with a router (and firewall). I disabled the
firewall and exposed the Ubuntu machine to the internet without a
firewall. That did not help.
