Ubuntu upgrade to 11.04 (403 errors)

May 2, 2011

If you decide to upgrade to 11.04 and are getting 403 Forbidden error messages when packages are being download (I got it for xulrunner) then try starting Update Manager, locate the settings for the mirror you are using and change it to something else – in my case I reset it to “main”. You wont have to download everything again as the files are cached, but you should get past the problem and your upgrade should continue and hopefully succeed (I had a lot of clicking to do as I was asked if I wanted to modify config files I had customised).
