Ubuntu: How to speed up apt-get update?


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).


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
