    Download and install a supported version of the Raspberry Pi OS.

    If you want help you need to ask a sensible Question. Incluing OS e.g Raspberry Pi OS - Bullseye Raspberry Pi OS - Buster & model. Post actual command and error messages. See Tour to see how this site works and How do I ask a good question?

You can use legacy instead of archive.

deb http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib

Jessie and Wheezy are still available. Note that, at some point, you must upgrade, because, since it was moved to legacy in 2019, not a single update on the packages were made. So, for example, no security patches.
