I am Using Linux Mint 17.

I try to run this command:

sudo apt-get update

But I am getting the following error:

W: Failed to fetch file:/var/cache/apt-build/repository/dists/apt-build/main/binary-i386/Packages File not found

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

How can I solve this error?
