I've solved this by adding Raspbian Repository Mirror in

Code: Select all

/etc/apt/sources.list
My file looks now like this:

Code: Select all

#deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
#deb-src http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/archive.raspbian.org/archive/raspbian stretch main contrib non-free rpi

Had the same problem just minutes ago, but is working again now. Must have been a server problem.

This can happen when a repository is being updated , has been reported before on this forum, the fix is to just wait a while to allow the repository update to complete and then try again.
