This question already has an answer here:
I have Ubuntu 13.10 installed as a dual boot system with Windows 7. Ubuntu loads normally, but when I try to update with Synaptic Package Manager, I get the following error message and the system stops there....
Failed to fetch http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/saucy/InRelease Failed to fetch http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/saucy-updates/InRelease (and other links listed too!) Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
What is wrong please?
