Hi simon, 

I was just having that issue now as well with quantile (sp?) release. I changed my source to isn't and it works fine now. 

In the software centre,  goto - edit -software sources, change the download from, to "other" and select a new mirror. You will then need to update your lists again.. 

Best regards
