I cannot update 5 packages because I get:

E: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_85.0.4183.121-0ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.91.38 80]

Any clue?

The whole sequence:

1) When I enter sudo apt-get update:

Hit:1 http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/stable/ubuntu bionic InRelease Hit:2 http://es.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Hit:3 http://ppa.launchpad.net/elementary-os/os-patches/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Hit:4 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease
Hit:5 http://packages.elementary.io/appcenter bionic InRelease
Hit:6 http://es.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates InRelease Hit:7 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease
Hit:8 http://es.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-backports InRelease Reading package lists... Done

Then I enter sudo apt-get upgrade:

So I try sudo apt-get upgrade --fix-missing

UPDATE 1:

Since the deb is not there, I manually downloaded and installed the newest version: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_86.0.4240.75-0ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb

I had a warning telling me that a prvious version in the respository was a better idea because supported blah blah

I let Appcenter upgrade, and some were upgraded (GIMP fors instance) and other don't.

Now when I run sudo update & upgrade in terminal I get:

Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages have been kept back: initramfs-tools initramfs-tools-bin initramfs-tools-core linux-generic-hwe-18.04 linux-headers-generic-hwe-18.04 linux-image-generic-hwe-18.04 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.

So Appcenter tells me to upgrade this packages but then it won't.

UPDATE 2:

Do not try this at home because I don't know exactly what I am doing, but following some ideas I read in other threads, I run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y and all pending packages were installed but one. I run it again but no luck:

The following packages have been kept back: initramfs-tools-bin 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

My Wifi stopped working so I booted with the previous kernel version and remove the version I unintentionally upgraded.

0

Happy ending! Two updates later, the Appcenter updated to the newest version of initramfs-tools-bin. Now Everything is updated.

Problem (apparently) solved.
