    apt-get size mismatch error


    Hi,

    I am using an Ubuntu 10.04 machine 64-bit on an HP Probook 4420s, and I am working behind a proxy for Internet access. Recently whenever I am trying to install using apt-get it is showing Size mismatch error.

    I tried various ways to get rid of it like:

    Code:
    apt-get clean
    changing the source server etc
    but nothing is working

    help me in this issue .....
