Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Do you use Synaptic? Have you ticked the box for Source Code (5 down on the front page)? Untick it!It is not necessary.

It looks like you're trying to use an address that doesn't exist. Why don't you post the text from /etc/apt/sources.list?

Just open the file with your favorite editor and copy/paste its content here, using CODE tags to improve readability. Otherwise open a terminal and do
Code:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
and again copy/paste the output here.
