It seems there is a problem with the Ubuntu archive. Sometimes indian servers seem to have problems. Does askubuntu.com/a/32097/236 help? –  qbi Jan 14 '13 at 8:31

The archive is incorrect. I should read http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/postfix

To correct the problem: From terminal gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list this will open the text editor and you can correct the offending line.

Make the entry as above^^
