Subject: [Ubuntu-ZW] New Ubuntu + Debian Repository


Dear local repository server users


The new ubuntu natty and debian 6 repositories are now configured on our
local server,

and are ready for use! 


more information is available on the repository webpage below if you are
using pre-release versions of 

ubuntu natty, or if you are already using debian 6.




Due to some people still using the ubuntu 8.04LTS release, i have decided to
postpone the removal of this repository

for now. So only the ubuntu 9.04 and debian 4 repository have been dropped
from our server.


I am personally very excited about both the new debian and ubuntu releases.
ubuntu is based on debian.. and with the

latest release of debian 6, some HUGE improvements have been made to the
overall OS.. which should be passed down

to the new ubuntu releases.


Ubuntu Natty Narwhal (11.04) is due for release middle of April. An ubuntu
release party is currently being organised..

so please keep watching this space for more information.


If you are still getting "cannot be found", or "404" errors when downloading
updates for your ubuntu machine, please

run the below command from a terminal window:


"sudo apt-get update"


then try the update again. some package folder names have been renamed.. so
running and update on apt-get will fix



cheers for now
