E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

I've installed numerous other packages with apt-get on this Intel iMac, running jessie, without problems.  Internet connection is OK.  I ran apt-get upgrade and ran with --fix-missing with no change.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
