Mint 17.1 upgrade problem (Solved)

Have 2 computers running linux Mint 17, the upgrade installed fine on the first one but the second one I am having problems with,
Followed all the instructions and everything appeared to be downloading ok but then the message .........Failed to fetch http://packages. Could not connect to packages linuxmint com:80 ( connection timed out.
Upgrade not successful.
Anyone any ideas ?
NB: Managed to upgrade successfully at the third attempt !

Strange maybe heavy usage with upgraders? You could have tried an alternative source (software-sources app)
