  • CPU: Core Two Duo E7500

  • MEMORY: 2Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller
When I try to change my sources to the best/ fastest server in UK, it returns the fastest server as being mirrors.nl.eu.org. Please see this link https://justpaste.it/18d7z for the errors I receive. It would also seem that the extras repository is causing an issue as I have had to remove that from my sources.list file.
Many thanks

Try the Package System Repair utility in Lite Tweaks.

Sorry Jerry but I don't believe this should be solved, it still returns an american server when you select uk, and when the cache is reloaded you get:
E:Failed to fetch http://mirror.evolvedservers.com/ubuntu-archive/dists/xenial/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?), E:Failed to fetch http://mirror.evolvedservers.com/ubuntu-archive/dists/xenial-security/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?), E:Failed to fetch http://mirror.evolvedservers.com/ubuntu-archive/dists/xenial-updates/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?), E:Failed to fetch http://mirror.evolvedservers.com/ubuntu-archive/dists/xenial-proposed/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?), E:Failed to fetch http://mirror.evolvedservers.com/ubuntu-archive/dists/xenial-backports/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?), E:Some index files failed to download.
