I'm currently trying to install a MySQL server on my Ubuntu 13.04 machine. The problem is, when I try to install it, I get error messages indicating that not all packages could be downloaded. When I run sudo apt-get install mysql-server, and after hanging for a while at reading headers, the console reads as follows:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

The following extra packages will be installed:
  libaio1 libdbd-mysql-perl libdbi-perl libhtml-template-perl libmysqlclient18 libnet-daemon-perl libplrpc-perl mysql-client-5.5 mysql-common mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5
Suggested packages:

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

I've tried the suggested fix or running apt-get update and such, I've made sure I have no connections blocked, I've restarted, uninstalled, reinstalled, etc, all to no avail. I've been searching the web all day for solutions I haven't yet tried, but most people with this issue are running an older version of Ubuntu. (By the way, I did try the solution here) Suggestions?

Do you have any proxies that the request goes through? What is the output of ping -c 5 91.189.92.190? –  Pieter Oct 2 '13 at 6:57

Try using the command sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then try sudo apt-get install -f and see if you can install mysql-server.
