there is one problem
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

E: The package google-chrome-stable needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

Hi and welcome.

You probably know that but it isn't clear in your post, perhaps due to the order in which you mentioned the commands, but update should be run before upgrade.
That said, try again tomorrow and make sure you do this sequence one at a time:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

The error message suggests the Google Chrome's PPA couldn't be reached which certainly is just a temporary problem.
