    Stupid question, but are you sure you have a working internet connection? Alternatively are you behind an improperly configured firewall? It doesn't seem like you can't install anything as much as you can't download anything to install.

    Perhaps the servers are jammed. Try again later...
    The whole (Ubuntu) world is downloading, installing and fixing Hardy Heron these days. Maybe patience is all you need...
