Try changing the servers for community supported packages in your 
/etc/apt/sources.list file to the following:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy-updates universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu gutsy-security universe multiverse

You might also want to try downloading the packages with a connection of 
a different ISP.
