I have searched for a solution and before I explain the issue, I have run apt-get update but I still get the problem. sudo apt-get upgrade is also experiencing the same problem.

I am assuming mirror.umd.edu (129.2.73.2) is currently unavailable but I am not entirely sure.


I am trying to install Samba:

sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin

However after a couple of minutes of waiting on this:

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

I tried the suggestion and ran with --fix-missing but no luck.

It is happening on two different pi units. Is there an alternative way to install everything I need? I tried searching for an alternate mirror but wasn't having much luck. Thank you

    Thanks. I was having the same issue. Looks like UMD is having trouble right now. – Steve Ashman Mar 13 '17 at 2:23

I was having the same issues, but the website seems to be working now.

Found a workaround to continue installing the package. I followed the accepted answer here.

I changed my apt-get source in /etc/apt/sources.list to this:

deb http://mirror.us.leaseweb.net/raspbian/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

(Mirror list here) then did sudo apt-get update and tried to install again. It worked that time.
