The exact error is: > > IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion These errors were related to temporary files on the remote server that are unimportant on the local mirror. They should not have caused a problem for you. If you have switched your apt sources away from lug.bu.edu, I'm comfortable giving the go-ahead to switch them back. I've made a change in how I sync to the upstream mirror that will exclude the temp files, but that shouldn't affect users of the mirror. I'll let you know if I figure anything out, but I doubt the problem was mirror-related at this point. I don't have any Ubuntu systems with which to test, though, so if I hear anything else I'll be sure to get back in touch. Ryan _________ BU LUG: http://lug.bu.edu.
