Solution 1 :

Here I am trying to use the simple Linux command



Step 1: Open the terminal box and type the below command:

sudo apt-get update

After that it will update all security, fetching packages in the Linux operating system.

If the above first resolution is not working then we will go with the second resolution.

Solution 2:

Open the terminal box and then type the below command

sudo apt-get clean

It will clean some of the unnecessary packages in the Linux machine.



After that, you will execute the package update command again

sudo apt-get update

The above resolutions are very simple to resolve this type of issue in the Linux or RedHat machines.
