This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It usually means that there is a problem with the server , not you. If the application you are downloading is from an 3rd party source, it would be worth the trouble to notify its maintainer. If it is from the official repositories you might want to try using another server. This can be done from the software center at edit --> software sources --> first tab on "download from"
