    Most likely, I think, is an internet problem. Either your connection messing around or the server where the packages are experiencing difficulty (or something in between).

    I don't know what the 59 in brackets means, but perhaps if you just try again in an hour or so it might be there again.

    Incidentally, the occasional full stop and capital letter would make your post much easier to read, and make life easier for the people who might be willing to try and help you.

    Can you copy the following into a terminal one at a time and post back the results (please put the results in [CODE] [/CODE] tags to make it easier to read).
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
