Those are in the repos. Try again.
Your download rate depends on several factors - the speed of the mirror you connect to and the number of other connections being made at the same time among others.
Well, after following the Option 2, the ibiblio mirror disappeared and found I’m in this mirror:http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/pclinuxos/
But, in the bottom-left it stated:
1951 packages listed, 1921 installed, 0 broken, 0 to install/upgrade, 0 to remove
In fact, this is all what is installed in the main ISO (except 5-6 programs I installed previously to the upgrade). Removing these programs from my system, they were removed from Synaptic too. Couldn’t find them listed. Making a Reload didn’t help.
I tried the Romanian and Brazilian mirrors as I understand these are functional.
The same thing!
What’s the explanation of this issue?
Finally, what I did, it was to enable this mirror: http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/pclinuxos/pclinuxos/apt/
And... there are:13 402
packages listed, 1921 installed, 0 broken, 0 to install/upgrade, 0 to remove
So, from there, I re-installed the programs I removed. The download rate turned to the good high values. arround 1000 kb/s.
But can’t perform an upgrade running this mirror.
