I am really not sure why you would be having such a problem because Mint 
is a simple lift of Ubuntu and uses the same method and repos to update 

I am sure that you would be aware that in the list of servers for the 
s/ware the default setting is the main server for Ubuntu, but you can 
then either select a mirror of your choice or allow the system to give 
you a list of the most EFFICIENT servers for you to access - and you 
then select the one you feel most comfortable with. But you know all 


Any experiment in life will be at your own experience.
