E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

For normal servers

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and replace the current servers in the file with http://archive.debian.org/debian.

Example – before

...
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free

Example – after

...
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free

For Ubiquity EdgeOS routers

SSH into the console and write:

config
set system package repository wheezy url http://archive.debian.org/debian
commit ; save
apt-get update

    Warning, this broke my Wheezy system after apt-get update & upgrade.
    Apparently the Debian system is not compatible with the Pi system.
