    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Seems like either some of your repos are down or your network connection is spotty. You might want to run apt-get update in a while loop to make life easier. Here's what I use to update and upgrade my system:
    Code:
    while ! ( date && sudo apt-get update ) ; do sleep 10s ; done && sudo apt-get upgrade ; date
