I am using python 2.7.  I tried the sudo apt-get install python-configobj  
resulting in an error:

Err http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ weezy/main 
python-configobj all 4.7.7+ds-4
404 not found 
Failed to fetch 
404 not found
E: unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with 

I did try apt-get update --fix-missing with no benefit.

this has to be something simple that I am unaware of.

thanks for your patience and time,  Mike
