You're having problems with your software sources servers. Change it from the Software Sources app. You can get to it by:

  • (Click) the Gear Icon at the top left
  • System Settings
  • Software & Updates
  • (click the tab) Ubuntu Software
  • Choose a different server from the Download Dropdown

You'll get the best server if you choose Other, then click Select Best Server. On that option, the system will run tests and match you with a mirror server with the best performance for your location.

    Works like a charm ( after setting server to Main Server) – Guy . D Aug 5 '17 at 15:30
