mint 17.1 update manager not downloading updates


I've been using Mint 17.1 for a few months with no problems until two days ago the update manager started being unable to install the updates. I just get the swirly thing going on and on. When I click cancel I get a number of error messages. I've searched for a fix with no luck. Do I need to reinstall?

May be stuck in update. I think that is apt-get clean or update clean (some such in man page)
