    And after you followed the advice of
    Code:
    sudo apt --fix-missing
    Then what did it do?

    Probably the same right? Most of the time, if someone gets a 403 status code "on an Ubuntu Repo or Mirror" its because the repo was either down for maintenance, or in the middle of a repo sync. No worries. Wait a bit and try again.

    It downloaded and updating everything except the archives with the "403". I just tried it again now, and it was able to retrieve those as well. So it's all okay now. Maybe next time I just wait for a few hours. Thanks for your help.
