For some reason, I can't seem to download Steam beta on Ubuntu xx.xx. It shows the following error messages:

Failed to fetch 404  Not Found [IP: 80]

Failed to fetch 404  Not Found [IP: 80]

Though I can still connect to the Internet and download other packages.

Is the server down?

Which version of Ubuntu are you using? If it is older than 11.04 other than 10.04 then supports have died and you need to upgrade to a higher version of Ubuntu. And please refer to this before asking questions over here, it may help you get answers faster. – i08in Dec 30 '12 at 18:17

Run sudo apt-get update again.

If that doesn't work, just wait. You might have caught something in the middle of mirroring.
