i am currently a newbie fro rp2. I am currently facing the problem when i am using putty and vnc server.

When i am going to press sudo apt-get update. It shows this:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get update

    Hey, welcome to RaspberryPi.SE. I've helped you out by formatting your post a little better, I hope you don't mind. You also had a Google Drive link, I think it was for an image? You can upload images directly to your post if you edit it. You mind also find this useful. – Jivings Nov 25 '15 at 9:17
  • @Jivings: The OP can't upload an image, since their rep is less than 10. – Jacobm001 Nov 25 '15 at 17:46
  • To avoid just giving a +1 response I would also add that a search engine hunt for "Raspberry Pi mirrors" yields a lot of old, stale, pre-Wheezy (a general Debian Linux distribution that formed a parent of the Raspbian Raspberry Pi specific "goto" distribution and which shares the same naming scheme for the major version number) - and when I got hit with the same problem with my first use of a Pi a week or so ago it took me a little time to track down a mirror with the current "Jessie" version. – SlySven Nov 26 '15 at 8:21

I had this problem late last week. It seems that the RPi foundation is having trouble with their mirror director service. Until they fix the problem, you can get around it by changing your sources file.

  1. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

  2. Change it to

    #deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
    #Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
    #deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free`
    deb http://raspbian.mirrors.wvstateu.edu/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
    deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi

Note: you use whichever mirror you want, that's just the one I selected.
