I'm working with a Debian GNU/Linux 7.5 (wheezy)

When I check the file /etc/apt/sources.list The file has this line:

# Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:
#deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

I tried to replaces for another repo line, but each time I replace it and run the command apt-get update after a while, I get:

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

What should I do to solve this problem?

Debian wheezy is no longer supported. It is two major releases older than stable. It has not received any updates since 31 May 2018.

The resolution is to dist-upgrade to oldstable, or to stable.

You can still use the archive repository but there is no more updates:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian wheezy main
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-archive/debian-security/ wheezy updates/main
