The internet connection is fine. I have tried the restore bash command 
for update and upgrade given to me by Paul Gear but that has not 
resolved the problem on this occasion.

Any other suggestions, please.

Change the "download from" server for software/updates to http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/ubuntu/archive.
This is the fastest server for Australia, but more importantly getting it to reset the software list may fix your problem.  Sometimes it gets confused about what server and what software list it is supposed to be using.  I've had that happen a couple of times over the years.  I don't know what causes it.
