    Fresh install Mint 9 apt-get install xxx fails


    I recently did a fresh install of Mint 9. After booting back up, I tried to do my normal -- update and upgrade with apt.

    The command apt-get update results in many errors such as
    :
    Failed to fetch "location" archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/u/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades_0.55ubuntu4_all.deb

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

    Running apt-get upgrade results in the same concept. It cannot find the repositories....

    Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

    -- Answering Y gives errors such as:

    Err "location" archive.ubuntu.com/ubunt index of /ubuntu[/url] lucid-updates/main apt 0.7.25.3ubuntu8

    Naturally, trying to upgrade the distr would not work.
    Am I missing something or doing something wrong??
    "location" replaced the url since I cannot post a url until 15 posts

    EDIT: Pinging these "not found" locations w/o problem.

    Respects...

    Opening the URL:

    Code:
    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/u/unattended-upgrades/
    And searching for

    Code:
    unattended-upgrades_0.55ubuntu4_all.deb
