then I get this: <img src="/home/sandyhec/Pictures/update.jpg"> –  Hugo Contreras Mar 26 '13 at 1:12
    
You can upload a picture into Imgur and then link it here. –  Lucio Mar 26 '13 at 2:07

Also, are you behind a proxy? Can you navigate in the web without problems? –  Lucio Mar 26 '13 at 2:11
    
"403 Forbidden" means that something between you and the target mirrors is preventing you to connect. This is specific to your network and hard to debug from here on a Q&A site. Verify your proxy settings (separate settings may apply for apt!) is the first thing I would do. –  gertvdijk Jul 19 '13 at 13:32

1 Answer 1

first check your apt folder in:

/etc/apt

look first for sources.list file to see if that source is commented with # and remove it.
