Hi people,

Does anyone know why the Google Akonadi Resource package is not available or 
unresolvable from the Karmic India repos server, while others work fine.

Below is what I get when I try to install it

andrew@ ~ sudo aptitude -y install akonadi-kde-resource-googledata
[sudo] password for andrew:

My repos server is currently set the one in India, and have not checked 
switching it to another yet. I also got a 100% packet loss when pinging it
andrew@ ~ ping in.archive.ubuntu.com
PING ubuntuarchive.hnsdc.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.

20 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 19150ms

However I am able to install other packages from the repos without issues. So I 
just want to confirm if its an issue on my system, or a general one.

Else if this is not an issue with Kubuntu, then  let me know and I will post @
