	Would anyone in CLUG be familiar with the periodic downloading of bug and 
security files?  I have been doing it now for some time (to Kubuntu 10.4) 
without problems but my recent attempts have been aborted with :

Failed to fetch 
Hash Sum mismatch
Failed to fetch http://au.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/tzdata/tzdata-
java_2010o-0ubuntu0.10.04_all.deb Bad header line
Failed to fetch 
Bad header line

label_0.8.2-2ubuntu2.1_i386.deb Bad header line

Got a single header line over 360 chars
Failed to fetch 
x11_0.8.2-2ubuntu2.1_i386.deb Got a single header line over 360 chars
Failed to fetch 
Bad header line

	I have been advised to try in Konsole : sudo apt-get update.  I have done 
(three times now) and received a screenful of response lines (which I have 
saved if anyone would like to read them) but still when I then  try for a 
download I get this termination.

	Those messages suggest to me that the problem is at the sending end - do 
they to anyone else?  And is there any more that I can do?
