This is what I got when update, I am using 10.04 LTS, once I tried to upgrade to 10.10, but ended up with error, since then all the updates are done from maverick, as you can see. Now I'm facing problem both in update and upgrade(release upgrade too). Is there a way to restore everything to its default, or anything else...

This question has useful, upvoted answers; it seems unlikely it was correctly closed. In particular, note that we do not close answered questions for being about old releases. I am voting to reopen this. –  Eliah Kagan Jul 31 '13 at 0:25

Me too had the problem, i am from India. So by default india servers selected. I changed it simply by going to "System" menu and on submenu "Administration" selected "Software sources". Their changing india server to "main" server not helped me.

So clicked the "other" option in "Download from" and then clicked on "select best server" button, which inturn tested 350 servers and selected the best reachable servers. After that no errors, all my update went so nicely and speedy too.

try the same.

Yes, the Indian servers are troublesome. I have the same problem, and I always either do a pingtest, or just set them to the Japanese servers. –  theTuxRacer Mar 26 '11 at 14:45

You could try an other mirror, like http://archive.ubuntu.com/. Run the next command to replace all occurrences of http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ with http://archive.ubuntu.com/:

sudo sed 's@http://in\.archive\.ubuntu\.com/@http://archive.ubuntu.com/@' -i /etc/apt/sources.list

Next, proceed with an update:

sudo apt-get update

Followed by an upgrade or install:

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install [package-name]

If it does not help, you can undo the previous change:

sudo sed 's@http://archive\.ubuntu\.com/@http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/@' -i /etc/apt/sources.list

I had the same problem with the norwegian servers (no.archive.ubuntu.com) –  Cort3z Sep 1 at 14:23
    
If you need to adapt the sed commands, run them with -i.backup instead of -i to not dstroy your original files when something goes wrong. (Or test them without -i (in place editing)) –  Volker Siegel 11 hours ago

run the command "sudo /usr/bin/software-properties-gtk" 1)It will open the software sources window,then select download from other,then select Best server,it will check the best server for you. 2)choose that server.close the window,now run the "sudo apt-get update"

This won't work. The reason it's not working is maverick (10.10) is end of life. There is a question here on installing software in end of life versions but I'd always recommend upgrading instead. –  Warren Hill Jun 6 at 12:33
