I did not upgrade from sana to rolling i download the iso from the offical site and start from scratch and the checksum was correct., I'm sure i configured the source list correctly but still got 404 error and hash sum mismatch

at 48% of dist-upgrading it is stopping,plz guide me what i want to do...

Put a # in front of lines:
3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th

apt-get clean
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

I tried it but still getting errors, i then tried using a Vpn to get updates and somehow it work I'm not from US so i think somewhat the mirrors in my country is broken or maybe my isp is blocking it. what should i do as using Vpn to get updates takes a long time ...
