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/
linux-kernel-headers/linux-kernel-headers_2.6.11.2-0ubuntu18_i386.deb
  Bad header line [IP: 195.248.90.54 80]

and none of the packages whatsoever download.

All of the repositories are activated.

Any idea what the problem might be?

Robert
