Ubuntu software update failure

1. Whenever I try to update my Ubuntu install, I first see a list of possible updates (217).

2. All updates are selected by default.

3. When I hit the "Install Updates" button, I see the message below.

4. I can install onesy-twosey updates; however, since there are over 200, this will take me a while :-)

One more note:
If I click on any of the offending links at the top (in the error message I see), it errors out.

Clicking on the URL in the first error, Failed to fetch http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/glib2.0/libglib2.0-bin_2.31.20-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb 404  Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.176 80] shows me:

12.04 is still beta at this time.

In Synaptic package manager, look under Settings -> Repositories.
On the Updates tab, do you see a checkbox for "pre-released updates"?  (I found a similar problem reported for 12.04 at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11798606.)

Those files apparently don't exist in that repo.

e.g. I picked 2 at random
