E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

FIX :
sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
Remove the entries us-west-1.ec2 as prefix:
Add the following in the file

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid main multiverse universe
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid-security main multiverse universe
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid-updates main multiverse universe

sudo apt-get upgrade
Then i done my package installation with out any error
sudo apt-get install php5-gd
