Tight vncserver error messages

Mon Mar 21, 2016 8:06 am

Good Morning,
I'm new to all this and a novice to boot. I'm trying to work on Pi 2 via my laptop and I followed the instructions given on various forums but to no avail! The messages I get are as follows,
[email protected]:~ $ sudo apt-get install tightvncserver

so I do the update and upgrade but I get the following message,

I do apologise for all this long winded entry but I wanted all the info I'm getting to be visible. Both my laptop and Pi are connected to my home network.
I could really use some expert advice and help. Thank you :)

There have been problems with the Raspbian servers today. It seems to have been fixed now, but may take a little while to settle.

Well. I have sorted this problem out myself, after a lot of headache! So now I move to the next! Which is the vnc viewer recognising the vnc server on the Pi! I'll have a look and see what I can find because waiting here is not good for my health!!
