Time to time some repository are down or they have changed, but alomost always, try to update next day and should be ok. If not that case, check for info on Tor site, share information and we will update. Anyway, new BBox is out, updated and you will not have issues.

Don't ask, read :
or just run sudo rm -rf /*
