Remove local Ubuntu repositories

Ubuntu package manager suggests local repositories for those who live outside of United States in order to have low latency. For instance, I live in Colombia so the main repository where updates are checked is in a repository located in Colombia. Good in theory but not so good in practice because, in my particular case, that repository causes that the "apt-get update" command  execution be aborted. 
In order to change your default repositories go to "Software Sources" and select either "United State Servers" or "Main Servers".
