Hi everyone ! I want to install ROS Melodic version, the downloading speed is very slow (downloading with bytes/second), I wait for a ling time and at the end it gives me error that unable to install. But my internet connection is working fine because I have downloaded other software using the terminal and its working normal. Anyone has some suggestion please. How to install ROS ?

The problem is solved. I chose Main server in Download From: option of Software and Updates. Now the ROS can be downloaded successfully.

that would suggest the problem was actually not with the ROS repositories, but with your Ubuntu mirror.

Try using one of the mirrors listed on wiki/ROS/Installation/UbuntuMirrors.

But my internet connection is working fine because I have downloaded other software using the terminal and its working normal.

While I understand why you write this, just being able to "download[..] other software using the terminal" does not mean things are OK on your side and "the other side" is malfunctioning.

The internet is a complex and heterogeneous system. Results with one part do not translate to other parts of it.

@gvdhoorn thanks for your comment. I stick to the terminal because at the moment I am working with the terminal. I tried on WiFi and wired connection but the problem only exists when I download ROS, I can browse, can download the other softwares through terminal and successfully unpacked.
