I too am a relative newcomer to Pardus (I've been using it about two months), so this suggestion is a guess on my part and it might not solve your problem. But did you follow the instructions below, before you attempted your very first update?http://bit.ly/7Lxij6
"Before doing any update
[From the Pardus 2009 Wiki]
Open System > Konsole Terminal
and enter the following command:
sudo pisi up -c system.base
: You only have to issue that command once, right after a new installation and before you do your first update of the system. You do not have to run the command before subsequent updates).
Another possible cause might be that you have run into the down repository problem recently reported by Andreas:http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3148.0
." 10 Jan. 2010.
If you're using the default Turkish repos, you might consider switching to one of the alternative repositories mentioned in this discussion thread:http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=2919.0
"Slow official repos?
(I'm using the Dutch repositories and they have been working fine for me, even though I'm located in Texas).
HTH. With best wishes,
