Some index files failed to download

Hello all,

Having done a clear installation from Jessie to Stretch, when trying to "sudo apt-get update" I got the following error message:

W: The repository 'http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch/updates Release' does not have a Release file. N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details. E: Failed to fetch http://deb.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch/updates/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 2a04:4e42:1b::204 80] E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I've tried to find a workaround in web, unfortunately with no luck.

Any ideas please?
