Hi Fernando,

Following a recent posting, I've also discovered that /var/apt/archive was full of RPMs, so I did an apt-get clear. Now, when I try to update I get this:

[root@ip-61 dos]# apt-get update
Get:1 http://ccrma.stanford.edu fedora/3/i386 release [1424B]

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I've tried multiple times at different times of the day and get the same. It's the same "Failed to fetch..." as well. I never had this before I did the apt-get clear: Did I mess something up? Is there a quick-fix to this?

 apt-get clean
should do the trick...
