Hi Roberto,

after setting it to 5 Minutes (you saw that), and after waiting for another
day (in fact it was over night) all of a sudden it works automagically. Now
I'm back to 60 Minutes, and it still works - when I come in in the morning,
I just wait for 60 minutes before I try an 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get
dist-upgrade', because most of the time we have to switch off the boxes
over night :-(

Waiting the 60 minutes in the morning is probably not necessary.  Also,
I set my proxies to 240 minutes, but that is personal preference (in
my case I have an old slow machine acting as proxy).

Why do you need to shut down the machines?  That seems very strange.
Is it company policy? unreliable electric power?


HTH,


It did - and I appreciate it. Thanks again.

Glad it's working out so far.

-Roberto
