Ubuntu Update Error

I recently install ubuntu 10.04 to my laptop.Since about 10 days it gives an error when i try to update.When i check for update it shows the update list.Then i ask to install update it download update and install them and after that it give an error massage.

Could not download all repository indexes

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

When i close the error massage it shows last update date several dates back(Your package information was last updated 10 days ago).Day by day last update date increase in one by one.

The site may be down. Remove it (temporarily) and you shouldn't have any problems. You may want to investigate where the site has moved to.
