I'm an advanced Windows user but absolute Linux newbie.

I was trying to install Libreoffice under Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (the
only version that has drivers for my eeePC netbook) following these

But got this error messages
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libreoffice 
Hit karmic Release.gpg

W: Failed to fetch

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones
used instead.

I suppose this means there is a specific build for Karmic (something similar
as a specific build for Windows 2000) but not all needed files are available
for that specific OS version?

Thank you in advance for any help ;)
