whenever I tried to install the KDE package, I get this error

Err http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates/universe apport-kde all 2.9.2-0ubuntu8.1 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.13 80]


This happens with any of the kde meta packages, I've tried runnig apt-get get update, and apt-get upgrade, and neither of those help the situation. I've also tried the --fix-missing arguments again to no avail. If anyone knows any cause to this I would be greatly appreciate it. I really want to try kde out again without having to reinstall an entire distro.

cat /etc/apt/sources.list?

it shows the address listed in the error at about the 4th block

I tried navigating to the url mentioned in the error and sources.list and noticed it had slightly different url structure that described in the sources.list file. I tried editing the the line in the file to match up to what I thought the structure should look like by chaning the existing url to 'http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/raring-updates/'. This however broke apt even more.
