Change Update Servers (Sources.list) on Ubuntu

Ubuntu Another quick note; Once I have installed Ubuntu, all my updates servers were pointing to sites and it was timing out. To change the list in Sources.list for software updates, the following can be used to remove prefixes (“tr” in my case to get to global update servers:

sudo sed -i ‘s/http:\/\/tr./http:\/\//g’ /etc/apt/sources.list

Good luck
