    Update problems

    I am stuck on this one. I tried to install updates through the update manager and got a "failed to download package files" message. The message says to check my internet connection but I can connect just fine. The body of the message is: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...ise1_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.202 80]
    Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...ise1_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.202 80]

    The IP address referenced in the message is not my IP address. I'm at a complete loss here and any tips twords solving this would be greatly appreciated.

    Go to the software centre and try changing the sources (edit > software sources) to a different server then open a terminal and
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then see if it gets stuck on the file.

    Top right Gear on desktop and choose System Settings then Software & Updates. Probably look in Other Software tab. Remove those 4.

    They are links to deb packages that dont exist. They are not repositories.

    Precisely. And they are not repositories but .deb packages.

    E.g. sources should look like this http://paste.ubuntu.com/5724258/
