Yeah, that mirror has been down for a while. See:[1][2]

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list (with sudo) and change the url to a different mirror.[3] I'm using https://mirror.fsf.org/trisquel/

Or, graphically, use "Software & Updates" in MATE's "Control Center".

A more detailed solution for me to link back to next time someone has this issue:

- From the main menu, launch System -> Administration -> Software & Updates
- Click on the dropdown menu labeled "Download from:"
- Select "Main Server"
- Click "Close"
- In the window that pops up, click "Reload"
- If update is successful, click "Install now"

Thanks...

First it had to update the cache.
Then it said check Internet for software updates.
Then it downloaded a whole bunch of updates, particularly to Abrowser & LibreOffice and something called libglib, as well as python, .

That was the expected behavior. Sounds like the issue is fixed.
