Error 404 during NGINX install on ubuntu 12.04

I’m following the instructions here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-nginx-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts-precise-pangolin

After pressing Y <Enter> to complete step 1, I get the following error:

Are you sure running apt-get update didn’t fix it? If so, can you please open up a support ticket so we can look into it. Thanks!

I have the same issue on the repo too. <br> <br>Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates/main php5-common amd64 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.11 <br> 404 Not Found [IP: 192.241.164.26 80] <br>Err http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu/ precise-security/main php5-common amd64 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.11 <br> 404 Not Found [IP: 192.241.164.26 80] <br>Failed to fetch http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/php5/php5-common_5.3.10-1ubuntu3.11_amd64.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 192.241.164.26 80] <br>E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing? <br> <br>I already tried apt-get update as well as using the --fix-missing option but still no luck. It seems the php5-common is not on the that repo list.
