Hi Thomas,

This is a known error in Ubuntu. Perform the below steps to resolve the error:

  1. Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and use the following command: sudo apt-get update . Wait for this command to run completely. This will show you the source of the error, mostly a http address
  2. Open Software & Updates from Unity Dash and click on Other Software. Uncheck the source http which you got in the previous step.

 

  1. Run the updates

It should go through fine now.
