I've got the same problem yesterday, at first time I thought that's because the repository, so I changed that but it still like that Then I've found that 403 means the request was legal but the server refuse to respond it So I try to changed the dns into the google's dns, and apt-get works fine like usually.

Note : I am using wifi from android gadget, and I changed the dns in my gadget, not in my laptop.

Sorry for my english language. Hope can help.
