Can I do it even though now everything has been updated?

I am sorry, but this is above my head. I do not know what you are talking about. 

In terms of networks, I had been having trouble both with my home connection (AT&T ADSL) and with the Northwestern University network. 

> I think you had problems earlier with the purdue mirror also, which is why I was using it in my tests.  I'd suggest setting a nearby mirror as your home repository for testing with TLU, just so results are consistent.  

You are right, I did use Purdue earlier, with no success. Since I am right now in Chicago, Purdue looked like a natural nearby mirror. Are there closer ones?
