I'm also getting the update window on each restart starting this week for 
ttf-mscorefonts-installer and it always fails.
I manually ran the package-data-downloader and I get the same errors.
I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 
Linux 4.4.0-51-generic #72-Ubuntu x86_64

$ sudo /usr/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloader
