Ubuntu: How to speed up apt-get update?



Question:

sudo apt-get update is extremely slow (take serveral hours), how to speed it up ?
I already tried much solutions including forcing IPv4, editing /etc/apt/sources.list, choosing the "best server" in Software & Updates settings ... but in vain.
I have the same problem in both Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04 (VMs).


Solution:1

Change the server location from the software update settings, prefer your country server for the fast repository get requests,

And then run

sudo apt-get update
