That error is basicly telling you that it can't find the files it needs..

By clicking on the links, I can not find the files either :)

Can you list out your sources list?
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list -n
Then paste the results here..

Ok - open up your update manager... then click on 'settings'..

do you see any PPAs listed there?

It seems to me that your sources are all wrong - I'm no expert so my way of fixing that would be to reinstall Ubuntu, but I'm sure there's an easier way that involves editing your list of sources.

Sounds like you have a bad internet connection. I have seen that kind of error when my internet connection goes up and down like a yo-yo.

That probably means that the URL of the sources is down or has been deleted. That is what that error would mean usually anyway.
