and when i try to download and install a software from terminal it tells me:
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with
--fix-missing?

i also tried installing Softwares from Synaptic it also gives me errors of same kinds.. also there is a red triangle on the top right of my screen telling me:

the update information is outdated. this may be caused by network problems or a repository that no longer exists,

now i searched a lot on web on trying to solve this problem so i ran plenty of repositories to see if they work.. but non of them worked..

i checked also my software sources, i ticked or Unticked everything on "other software" tab, but still nothing changed.

this is how my software sources is now: picture 1

picture 2

picture 3

picture 4

also this is the body of my etc/apt/source.list:

why are they all ending with InRelease? Those really don't exist. The links are supposed to end with Release. Have you edited /etc/apt/sources.list? It is also quite weird it is trying to connect to localhost, when downloading *.gpg –  Pavel A Dec 15 '12 at 17:42
    
i added the body of my source.list to the question, take a look and tell me if i should change anything, thanks. –  AmirRazoR Dec 15 '12 at 18:19
    
looks okay. Please, repost its contents using block quote - it's hardly readable. –  Pavel A Dec 15 '12 at 18:22

apt seems to be using your own computer as a mirror (127.0.0.1:9666). Don't you have/had any software like apt-cacher and removed/disable it?

If this is the case, that information should be configured in /etc/apt/apt.conf or in any file present on /etc/apt/apt.conf.d. To see if it is set in any of those files use :

cat /etc/apt/apt.conf
grep -r proxy /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/

If you see any information regarding a proxy on those files, just edit it using sudo gedit <path_to_file> and comment that section using "#". To have a clue what you should be looking take a look at this answer.

After this just do sudo apt-get update and it should be fixed. If not then you will have to inspect why it is using localhost as a mirror (are you connected to a proxy?).

i did use a proxy actually, it's name is "ultra surf" and yes it's ip and port is exactly (127.0.0.1:9666) so i went to etc/apt/apt.conf.d and i removed that ip and port of that proxy and saved that file, and then i ran get-apt update and now still the same problem. it gave me the exact same errors, i also ran cat /etc/apt/apt.conf grep -r proxy /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ but it didn't make any changes, what did i do wrong? –  AmirRazoR Dec 15 '12 at 18:47
    
those two commands are to inspect the apt files to see if proxy is set in any of those. If you still get that then probably you have that proxy defined as system-wide: see System Settings > Network > Proxy settings. –  Salem Dec 15 '12 at 18:53
