You should try changing your software sources.

To do this you can open a terminal CTRL+ALT+T and enter software-properties-gtk and then select "Main Server" from the dropdown menu pictured below.

After selecting the main mirror open another terminal and enter sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get update.

I came across a bug listing on launchpad a couple days ago and now your problem. However no one seems bearing an idea about this but subscribe and keep watching the report over here. Someone might release a patch soon.
