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 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/tzdata/tzdata-java_2011j-0ubuntu0.10.10_all.deb 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?

Try to to this:
1. Open a terminal by hitting CTRL + ALT + T
2. Insert and run this:
sudo software-properties-gtk

3. In the new window, select 'Main Server' at Download from.
4. In the terminal run:
sudo apt-get update

5. Try to install update now.

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?
