You should remove the Zesty URL from your sources.list. Use only the Artful sources. Zesty is an EOL Ubuntu release its URLs isn't compatible with your current distribution.

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list or the file under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ then remove:

http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu zesty-security
