you maybe fix this by using vi /etc/apt/sources.list and see if there maybe a mistake in the apt sources file. If that is not the case you can always download the package manually and then use dpkg to install it. Maybe you can google Ubuntu+Working+APT+Sources.list, or do a search for adding sources, that way you will get a picutre of what someone has on their apt-get source.list. Thats what I did when I erased something in there by accident. A good thing to practice is to create a folder in your root directory and copy the original file/files that you intend to change before changing them. You can always rename them to such like: sources.list.backup and so on.
