sudo apt-get install openssh-server

I got this error:

Err mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt/ precise-updates/main openssh-server i386 1:5.9p1-5ubuntu1.4

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

My /etc/apt/sources.list content is:

deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise main restricted universe
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt precise-security main restricted universe multiverse

Why and how to fix it ?

can you post the contents of the file /etc/apt/sources.list ? –  chaybs May 19 at 7:37

If you type in your browser mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt do you see the list of mirrors ? –  cioby23 May 20 at 8:07

I think your issue might be related to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-cacher-ng/+bug/1020995. I have tried to use the mirror feature on Ubuntu 14.04 also and gave some errors.

You can backup your /etc/apt/sources.list file

sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.orig

and create a new one with following content. Replace the ro.archive.ubuntu.com with initials from your country (e.g fr, de, us etc).

###### Ubuntu Main Repos

###### Ubuntu Update Repos

###### Ubuntu Partner Repo

Then run:

sudo apt-get update
