I had this error for quite a while this morning. The only way to handle this is to wait some time. The problem is lying on the server side as changes of IP or election of another mirror did not do the trick here. In case, you get this error again, you may want to report that to the maintainer.

There are several issues here: you have put the symlink into /usr/bin, which is not a good idea, as this is a directory that is managed by dpkg/apt. You should have installed them into /usr/local/bin (etc) as suggested by the installer after that, you installed texstudio and by this the dependencies on texlive packages in Ubuntu.

I had the same problem with WinEdt and Windows 8.1 when I starting a new user profile in Windows. When I was trying to compile a presentation in Beamer, the same error was popping up. Tracing the log file, I saw that WinEdt was not able to download the package from the internet. Then, I have installed TeXStudio and tried to compile. It connected to internet ...

If you are installing a 'traditional' TeX font (with .tfm files, a .map etc.), then the best place is /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local. This is the best position not because it uses resources more efficiently but because it is much easier to maintain. If you use ~/Library/texmf, then you will need to intervene manually when you update your TeX Live ...
