  • Have you checked your Internet connection? – Mitch Jul 21 '12 at 18:21
  • @Mitch My connection is fine I guess as I can browse the Internet fine – Mohamed Tarek Jul 21 '12 at 18:36

There is a 7 step Package Manager Troubleshooting Procedure available at Ubuntu Documentation Have a look at it, and let me know if it works.
