I just had a catastrophic crash which necessitated reinstalling Debian.  I had been running v-7.2,but decided to upgrade to v-7.10 with a complete install.

Now when I update the repositories, regardless of the tool, Synaptic or Aptitude, I get the following errors:

W: Failed to fetch http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/wheezy/updates/main/source/Sources: 404  Not Found [IP: 2610:148:1f10:3::89 80]

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
E: Couldn't rebuild package cache

Your deb-src lines should read as follows:

deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/wheezy-updates/main/source/Sources
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/wheezy-updates/contrib/source/Sources
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/wheezy-updates/non-free/source/Sources

Note that you have .../dists/wheezy/updates/... in your sources.list file instead of the correct .../dists/wheezy-updates/...

I do not get these errors if I comment out the deb-src lines in the sources.list.

Now, I know that it has to be a problem with the new install as I have installed v-7.10 in a VMware Workstation 12 Player on my laptop as a test bed and do not get any errors.

I would greatly appreciate help resolving this issue,.

Thanks in  advance.
