I have an Ubuntu 12.04 virtual box vm that I instantiate using Vagrant.
git clone https://github.com/spuder/puppet-gitlab vagrant up
As soon as the vagrant box runs
apt-get update, I get the following error.
... W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/apt.puppetlabs.com_dists_precise_main_binary-amd64_Packages Hash Sum mismatch W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/apt.puppetlabs.com_dists_precise_main_binary-i386_Packages Hash Sum mismatch W: Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/apt.puppetlabs.com_dists_precise_dependencies_binary-i386_Packages Hash Sum mismatch W: Failed to fetch http://br.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise-updates/restricted/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
Things I've tried to work around this error.
- Used 3 different ubuntu 12.04 boxes from 'http://www.vagrantbox.es'
solution suggested here:
sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get clean
Removed and readded the puppet labs packages
I've also tried similar suggestions that I've found in the first few pages of google. I've even tried multiple computers, and multiple internet connections.
The fact that this has affected multiple ubuntu vm's on multiple internet connections makes me think there is something wrong with the ubuntu repo.
How else can I try to fix this issue?
I tried cleaning out '/var/lib/apt/lists/partial' and running apt-get clean then replaced the sources in /etc/sources/list by using the amazon mirrors suggested here:
I still get a similar error

I have 2 internet connections at home, both of them gave the same error. As soon as I took my laptop to my work internet connection, the problem went away.
I'm still curious to understand why my internet connection would make any difference.
See my answer below for an explanation. My internet filter was corrupting the download.
I'll rephrase the question since there are no answers yet.
Is there a way to override Hash Sum mismatches in apt-get?
