@Juanjo the version of Ubuntu you are using is simply too old. The best thing for you to do is copy all your data to an external drive, then reinstall version 12.04 or 12.10. –  Tom Brossman Dec 23 '12 at 10:16

Ubuntu 10.10(Maverick Meerkat) had reached end of life on April 10 2012. Its repositories is no longer maintained, as you can see at this link. You have to install a currently supported Ubuntu version, preferably 12.04 LTS or 12.10.
