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

When you attempt to connect to a Web site through proxy server, the following error may appear:
HTTP/1.1
407 Proxy Authentication Required

You must authenticate with a proxy server before this request can be serviced.
Please logon to your proxy server and then try again.

Are you using a proxy????

Are you behind a firewall?
It seems like there is a proxy between you and the server.
And you need to get authed to get trough.

This article (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/synaptic/+question/1320) on launchpad should help you.

Hi,

according to the error message
407 Proxy Authentication Required, it seems that you are using a proxy.

When you try to download the index files, you need to authenticate yourself, but Synaptic does not.

You could take a look at System --> Preferences --> Network Proxy and check that either no Proxy is set or that you use the correct settings.

I am working in an educational institute where they have set up a proxy. I used the Network Proxy in System -> Preferences to add the details of my proxy. I also entered the username and password in the authetication tab. But for some reason I am not able to connect to update my system. Any help in this regard would be welcome!!

Maybe the proxy blocks all traffic to some domains and unfortunately, archive.ubuntu.com could be one of those domains which are blocked.

You are probably going to have to use NTLmaps to authenticate with the proxy. It's pretty easy to setup. You can download it from the repositories with a net enabled connection http://packages.ubuntu.com/
