If you are getting errors like these with Ubuntu Updates, then the solution might be something very trivial.

W: Failed to fetch
 404 Not Found [IP: 80]
W: Failed to fetch
 403 Forbidden [IP: 80]

Here are the possible reasons and their solutions:

1. Your update list is oudated: Just reload the list of updates and then try to apply the update again and updates should work again.

2. Your network connection is not turned on: just double check if you are connected to the network.

3. Ubuntu repositories are not accessible for some reason (least likely): Try again later.
