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

I am have tried apt-get update --fix-missing but that doesn't help.

Not sure how to go forward.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This describes a problem that can't be reproduced that seemingly went away on its own or was only relevant to a very specific period of time. It's off-topic as it's unlikely to help future readers." – muru, Eliah Kagan, Eric Carvalho, karel, Seth
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Could you try with another mirror? Perhaps another mirror in the country where this server is, and worst case archive.ubuntu.com itself. –  muru Aug 15 '14 at 17:07
The problem resolved by itself (?). That might have been a problem with the mirror which they resolved eventually. thank you for your suggestion though. –  joël Aug 18 '14 at 11:46
