I find that this happens when I've added a repository that has a problem in the application manager. Try going in and unchecking the "Enbaled" for some if not all but the one repository that you want to connect to.

Hope this helps.

There is a logging tool in the application updater tool (it is in the pulldown menu) and it will give you a list of where things have gone wrong. You can turn those repositories off and then run again. I find, generally they work after a few days.

same for me. I think, there's a problem in, not with your device. Just wait a few days - surely it will work again...

Ressurrected this thread as I am having exactly this problem. Did anyone ever find a solution for it?

So...I flashed my N800 with the latest build. I try to install things but they all involve a adding an application catalogue and the application manager fails with a "failed to fetch" message.

Checked the proxy settings and I have no proxy enabled. My wireless is set to auto DNS and DHCP. I can browse but not connect to application catalogues. I've disabled all the catalogues I can but the nokia one which cannot be disabled. So I can't install anything at the moment.

andysmee: Please provide the exact error message you get, otherwise it's too vague.

My N800 is not here just now so I'll reconstruct it from memory:

E: Failed to fetch
Could not connect to (, connection
timed out

This appears for all catalogues that I enable
