I am a college student and I am getting this error almost for a month. I first thought it was a server error,but I am pretty sure now that it has nothing to do with server as I have tried every server and none of it was profitable.I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS for months but this error only presented itself now. Here is my Output for sudo apt-get update :

  • Have you tried to select some other repository ? – Soren A Dec 6 '18 at 9:20
  • I am using la-mirrors.evowise.com because in the software centre when i chose Best Server this server shows up. But i Have tried Main Server. I dont have a proxy in apt.conf. I also deleted partially downloaded files but nothing's happening. – Pearl Yadav Dec 6 '18 at 9:21
  • How can i select other repos?? – Pearl Yadav Dec 6 '18 at 9:23
  • did you update and upgrade your apt, after you edited the list? , if you did it, based from your new sources.list the list of sources.list.d not like that!!! – abu-ahmed al-khatiri Dec 6 '18 at 11:56

You need to fix source.list and switch to country's default repository mirror as it is not permitting you to download packages without authentication. You need to edit file /etc/apt/source.list

sudo nano /etc/apt/source.list

Replace content with following content

###### Ubuntu Main Repos
deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted universe multiverse 

###### Ubuntu Update Repos
deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-security main restricted universe multiverse 
deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates main restricted universe multiverse 

After that you will be able to update and upgrade system

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
  • Sorry, not working,Still same errors been showing... – Pearl Yadav Dec 6 '18 at 9:42
  • You should remove other source lists – Ketan Patel Dec 6 '18 at 10:23
  • Where can i Find them? – Pearl Yadav Dec 6 '18 at 10:24
  • @PearlYadav you still have Zesty Repository. change it from deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ zesty main to deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic mainand remove the 3rd-party repository like as mentioned of @KetanPatel – abu-ahmed al-khatiri Dec 6 '18 at 10:29

    Check and remove every file which is content in /etc/apt/source.list.d/ directory. – Ketan Patel Dec 6 '18 at 10:39
