This will solve your csh issue also.. your repos are pointing to old/bad links so it can't go and download the software..

What a mess...

This is your sources simplified - there was a lot of needless duplication and I have disabled source repos:

Code:
deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-backports main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse
#deb-src http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu quantal partner
#deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu quantal partner

deb http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu quantal main
#deb-src http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu quantal main

deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed restricted main universe multiverse
#deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed restricted main universe multiverse

Do the following:

Back up existing sources:
Code:
# mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.old
Code:
# nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Copy and paste the above tidied up sources, save the file (or use gedit if you must).

Then

Code:
# apt-get clean && apt-get update
Post the output, if there's still a problem then it's likely to be with the repository mirror itself, as syntactically that looks correct (I am not a buntu user).

Make sure to use the best server for your location.
Open Software Sources
Press Alt+F2, type gksu software-properties-gtk, and enter your password. (Alternatively, select Settings... at the lower left corner of the Update Manager, or go to Settings > Repositories in Synaptic).

  • That's for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, which you are not running. In later releases, you can just run software-properties-gtk and when you make changes, PolicyKit will authenticate you.
  • Most people using newer releases have the Software Center and not Synaptic. In the Software Center, you would go to Edit > Software Sources....
  • The Update Manager is unchanged, but in new releases is called the Software Updater.
Change the Download Server
In the Ubuntu Software tab of the Software Sources window, there is a drop-down menu labeled Download from. Select your regional server. For example, I'm in the United States and it looks like this on my 11.10 machine:


Software Sources window showing Sever for United States being selected in the "Download from" drop-down menu.

You may see other servers listed in that short list (like the server you currently have set up).

You can use the Main server too but it is almost always considerably slower than using your regional server. (At least in the United States, anyway.)

If you want to use another mirror, you can look through a list of mirrors by clicking Other....

I'm not convinced that you even have an active network connection...

Can you post these outputs
Code:
$ /sbin/ifconfig
Code:
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
