You seem to be running Raspbian Wheezy. This is seriously outdated and the best solution is to start fresh with the current Raspbian Buster.

The reason you don't get updates is that the Raspbian Wheezy repo has been moved to a different location and may soon be removed/discontinued completely.

Change archive.raspbian.org to legacy.raspbian.org in /etc/apt/sources.list to access this the repo.

  • Where do you see that it's Wheezy?

  • @Ingo top line in the image. Starts with 'Err' then location and 'wheezy/main python3-pip', etc
