Trouble installing tcpdump using apt-get


Trying to install tcpdump on my debian box. I logged in as root and typed:

Code:
apt-get install tcpdump
Here's the response:

Code:
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libpcap0.8
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libpcap0.8 tcpdump

Need to get 319kB of archives.
After unpacking 766kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
Where do I go from here?

Usually you have to re-run apt-get update.

Or try to specify a different mirror in sources.list

Or wait until tomorrow. Sometimes an error slips in on the mirror sites. Maybe it sounds silly but that is my experience.

re-running apt-get update again did the trick. Thanks.
