tzdata can't be updated

Asked by John Small on 2011-10-08

When I tried updating my packages this morning I got these errors

Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

If I unchecked the Tzdata packages the update went through without a problem.

Why would a package be listed in the recommended updates section, and then not be found when you try to update it?

The file has been updated, If you just run:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y upgrade

It will be ok

Can you help with this problem?
