Ubuntu has LOTS of servers all over the world for updates.  It picks one 
for you at install, but if that one falls over, bad things happen.  From 
the cli run software-properties-gtk and click the "Download From" 
dropdown and pick something else.  Note that clicking "Other" can allow 
you to pick the best server via a ping test.
