Ubuntu – “apt-get update” always failed to fetch


I don't understand why this issue could be survive. It display this error message all the time

Fetched 32.8 MB in 1min 16s (430 kB/s)                                         
W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-security/main/binary-amd64/Packages  Hash Sum mismatch

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-security/universe/binary-i386/Packages  Hash Sum mismatch

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I was tried to using these commands (which found in this question)

sudo apt-get clean
sudo rm -vf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
sudo rm -vf /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/*
sudo apt-get update

No luck for me. That dump message show up again. Always failed with security.ubuntu.com. My internet connection is OK, I'm able to ping to security.ubuntu.com without any trouble.

So, the question here is why? And anyone out there can help me out of this? I'm going to crazy!

Configure your proxy in network settings of your PC for each of items like HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and Socks and apply settings to system wide if you are using proxy.

Remove the existing packages and then try as follows:

apt-get clean
rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
apt-get clean
apt-get update 
apt-get upgrade
