It looks like an off line repository, nothing's wrong with your system. For some reason, Canadian repositories get down quite often. You can either wait or choose a different server from System>Admin>Software Sources.

In synaptic, try Settings > Repositories, Download from: > Other, Select Best Server. Choose Server, Close. After doing this try running your commands again.
