Public bug reported:

When using the mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt  functionality on
Trusty, if the download of the index file fails, apt will not retry on
another archive listed in mirrors.txt and will fail.

Running the following on Trusty leads to the following result :

sudo apt-get update -qq

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

The same configuration works correctly on Xenial
