I can view that from here, what happens if you visit
http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/
in your webbrowser? It works fine for me here so it should work.
If not, can you ping it in the terminal?

Or, download the files from a sourceforge mirror if switch.dl doesn't want to talk to you and look for where they need to go.

@dddanmar (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=960893): I think I should have posted the whole error msg. When I visit http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/ I can see their site and asking me if I want to download but that is not the only site I am looking for. Anyway, the whole error msg is

[B]Hello Friends,
I was completely disturbed with this problem since a month...
Now I got a workaround...
Just go to System-> Administration->Synaptic Package Manager and search for the concerned package which is "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" and make a right click and choose option "Mark for Complete Removal" and click on "Apply " above...
It will remove and no more issues in futue while installing any package....
Note: This package is only needed if you want to use Redmond's programs using Wine...else NOT....
Feel free to contact me.. shatul_in@hotmail.com
