When you choose different mirrors, they 8ndicate the download speed. You just have to choose the one's with max download speed.
If mirrors are corrupted, other users using them would be affected. Nobody else has complained.
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

I can confirm those problems. Sunday 2019-07-30, about 1 or 2 am. Got a lot of complaints from synaptic about broken packages (none no find with synaptic, apt or dpkg), dependency problems. Nothing worked. First thought cause was handbrake and timeshift latest versions installed through ppa. Even restored several timeshift images. these could not be updated. Then a fresh install. As soon as usb-stick was removed and wanted to install updates, got message that apt-cache was corrupt and that I should choose new mirror. That did not help either.

Was a long night. Eventually gave up and fresh install monday worked perfectly.

Mirror problems are usually temporary. Solved within a couple of hours. Should new problems arise, then I advise to simply wait a day.
