I guess little research/reading here should answer your question.
Your distro provide you with documentation. Don't mind reading it before asking already answered question please.

1) Are you connected to the internet?
2) Maybe the mirror is dead, so try figure and use another one.

Did you try opening a shell console or hitting alt+f2 for command prompt and type in "firefox" for instance ?
It may be also mozilla-firefox etc. The package name is up to the distro so check how is it called in yours, and search for it.
