Did you try running

apt-get update
or

apt-get --fix-missing

There seems to be a problem with some of the Canadian servers. Just go to System-->Administration-->Software Sources and choose a different server. I'm in BC and I'm using the Main Server with no problems. After changing servers do the:


sudo apt-get update

You should be good to go.

The canada server is most likely down, as it is prone to do

If there's something you need NOW, try packages.ubuntu.com or archive.ubuntu.com

edit: main server works too, but I make it a principle to try not to leave it on there.
