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

I am trying to install OpenStack on the server, and came to the Mysql step.

I can resolve security.ubuntu.com so you may have limited network connectivity or your name resolution is incorrectly configured. Make sure you have valid nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf and DNS is enabled on the hosts line of /etc/nsswitch.conf. Then try pinging www.yahoo.com.

Looks like the problem was limited network connectivity, tried to ping before I changed it, No response, after I did what you said, it worked. –  Teknikk Aug 27 '12 at 23:18

It seems there's a problem with the repository your are actually using.

Use this site to generate a new sources.listand paste it in the file /etc/apt/sources.list

After that sudo apt-get update to refresh the package list and try installing mysql-server again.
