(solved) can't run sudo apt install

I'm running Devuan Ascii 32 bit, and have been having trouble with audio (no sound!).
One of the solutions I found suggested that I remove and reinstall pulseaudio.
I ran sudo apt remove pulseaudio successfully. But when I try to run sudo apt install pulseaudio, I get this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Suggested packages:
  pavumeter paman paprefs
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  pulseaudio
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 1,090 kB of archives.
After this operation, 6,082 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Err:1 http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii/main i386 pulseaudio i386 10.0-1+deb9u1
  404  Not Found [IP: 185.183.113.129 80]
E: Failed to fetch http://deb.devuan.org/merged/pool/DEBIAN/main/p/pulseaudio/pulseaudio_10.0-1+deb9u1_i386.deb  404  Not Found [IP: 185.183.113.129 80]
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

sudo apt update --fix-missing didn't help. And I do have a working internet connection.
My /etc/apt/sources.list file looks like this:

# deb cdrom:[devuan_ascii_2.0.0_i386_netinst]/ ascii main non-free

#deb cdrom:[devuan_ascii_2.0.0_i386_netinst]/ ascii main non-free

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii main non-free contrib

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main non-free contrib
#deb-src http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main non-free contrib

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main non-free contrib
#deb-src http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main non-free contrib

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-backports main non-free contrib

Can someone please help me with this?

I don't see anything that is not correct, but I can state that at about the time that you were posting this, I was having some problems doing a regular update with similar "File not found" error messages. 

I would try it again later before I tried changing anything.

Re: (solved) can't run sudo apt install

Thanks. It's working fine this morning. I guess the server was offline or something.
And re-installing pulseaudio fixed my sound issues.
