This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Try to purge the cache and redownload the lists:

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo apt-get update

If it's not working, please post the content of /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.d/* (upload them to or a similar service and add the link here).
