(Just a bit of context: I'm new to Ubuntu and I'm trying to get the hang of the terminal and installing some programs on my PC. I was trying to install the media player mpv, but first it requested me to make sure that git is installed, so here I am.)


I typed git on the command line, and it said that the program was not installed. So I went ahead and:

$ sudo apt-get install git

And then I got this:

The following extra packages will be installed:
  git-man liberror-perl
Suggested packages:
  git-daemon-run git-daemon-sysvinit git-doc git-el git-email git-gui gitk
  gitweb git-arch git-bzr git-cvs git-svn
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  git git-man liberror-perl
0 upgraded, 3 newly installed, 0 to remove and 258 not upgraded.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

I gave the go ahead and it prompted me this:

WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
  liberror-perl git-man git
Install these packages without verification [y/N]? 

If I type "n", it simply exits saying "E: Some packages could not be authenticated". If I type "y", it gives me this instead:

Err http://br.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy/main git-man all 1:1.8.3.2-1

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

So I ran it with "--fix-missing", but after repeating all of the steps it again exited this time saying "Unable to correct missing packages. E: Aborting install.". So I went for the last option which was to run:

$ sudo apt-get update

And this is what I got:
