    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Ubuntu 16.10 is not the latest LTS version and you should upgrade to Ubuntu 17.04. – fosslinux May 26 '17 at 4:16

    17.04 is NOT an LTS release. This may be a silly question but are you connected to the Internet? e.g. ping ppa.launchpad.net or see if ppa.launchpad.net/upubuntu-com/web/ubuntu comes up in your browser. I'm assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that the repos you are trying to load and current and active. – jones0610 May 26 '17 at 4:25
  • Please check your internet connection! DO as jones said... – George Udosen May 26 '17 at 4:51
  • @jones0610, this may be a silly question but for those who may not be using Ubuntu regularly. – Dushyant Joshi May 26 '17 at 5:29

Just got out of this issue after spending 5 hours trying to figure out what was wrong. It is either your mirror through which Ubuntu is accessing packages or your service provider is blocking something. I would recommend:

  1. Check if the current server that you're using is accessible through the browser. If it's not, use another mirror. Go to 'Software & Updates' and choose a mirror from among the ones available at 'Download from'.
  2. Check the sources.list file in /etc/apt/ and comment out all the lines that access packages from the mirror that wasn't reachable.

If changing mirror doesn't work, check if you are able to get things updated using sudo apt-get update after you connect to a different ISP. Probably try with your phone's hotspot? Might just work. (Worked for me.)

  • Using another network solved the problem for me :) Still need to figure out which source caused the problem though. Thanks! – stemadsen Aug 19 at 11:08
