I get the latest Elementary OS Loki, buy a new SSD drive for linux. Install Elementary OS there today(03/19) and the this is the first thing I do : sudo apt-get update

Here's my result:

Failed to fetch http://packages.elementary.io/appcenter/dists/xenial/main/dep11/Components-amd64.yml.xz

Can someone help me here ? the other thread in this forum claims that the problem had been resolved, which isn't for me.

I solved it by

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

the "clean" argument deletes the local repo files.
