Update manager Problem

Hello! =]

I'll start by saying that Linux is GREAT!!!! I'm on Linux mint 32-bit, I love it! My Sony vaio Flys now!

My issue is this, every time I go to the Update manager and manually check for new updates this dialogue box appears.

Could not download all repository indexes

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.


What to do? I haven't a clue!

I almost forgot, yesterday i found out that one of my favourite programs (handbrake) finally updated, so I went to their site (http://www.handbrake.fr) to see if they made it available for linux again. they did, and they provided a 3rd party PPL. I'm wondering if this somehow changed the default ppl for the update manager

Please Advise.

I checked My source lists as par the instructions received on Linux Mints Forums, No reply or suggestion has been submitted as to how to resolve my issue
