    apt-get update giving error- no download from software center or terminal

    I have installed new Ubuntu 11.04 from .iso file but when I try to run
    sudo apt-get update
    It gives me following error.
    Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...source/Sources 404 not found [IP: 81.189.88.40 80]

    I have tried all these but it does not solve my problem.I am still facing errors.

    sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo dpkg --clear-avail
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update

    My internet connection is perfect. I am able to open all sites.
    I am not able to download any software from Ubuntu-software center.
    It shows error - "Failed to download repository information"
    I am not able to install software using terminal by install command.
    It shows error - "Unable to locate Package"
    Synaptic package manager is not able to fix broken packages because the "apply" button is disabled and mark for installation or re-installation is also disabled.It is not able to download new package information neither repository.
    It shows "Could not download all repository indexes"

    Please solve my problem.
