    I’m starting a separate thread because I’ve effectively narrowed down my problem, but am not sure why it’s happening or how to fix it.

    I don’t know if this is specific to the RetroPie image or something else specific to me.

    I’ve found under the 2.3 image I cannot run any updates or installs.

    When I do I get:
    Could not connect to mirrordirector.raspbian.org:80 (5.153.225.207). – connect (111: Connection Refused)

    Anybody else know why this is happening

    I found I cannot even connect to it from my laptop, but I also found if I use some kind of proxy on my laptop I can load it… So it appears either my ISP (Time Warner) is blocking raspbian.org OR raspbian.org is blocking me…

    I apparently will need to enable a proxy within my Raspberry PI in order to run updates…
