As I would like to try my hand at learning C++, for some days now I have
been trying to download the build-essential and dependent packages, but
I keep getting the following message:

W: Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/l/
  Bad header line [IP: 80]

and none of the packages whatsoever download.

All of the repositories are activated.

Any idea what the problem might be?
