Ubuntu 23.10 – Update Problems (Some index files failed to download)

I can’t seem to get apt to update – aside from having deb-src packages enabled and docker and mozilla repos my apt config should be fairly standard (and it doesn’t seem like they’re the problem anyway) – anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Doing apt-get clean before trying the update worked, thanks for the link @ChuckLiu
