    Switch to a different Software Source via System / Administration / Software Sources / Ubuntu Software ta. Select "Download from" and select the closest mirror to you.

    Try again with:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f

    Seems like your server is having issues with the package list.

    Can you try the following?

    sudo mv /var/lib/apt/lists/* /root/

    sudo aptitude clean

    sudo apt-get check

    sudo apt-get update

    If that too didn't solve, let me know the source list at "/etc/apt/sources.list"

    Note: Need O/P of "cat /etc/apt/sources.list".
