Assuming you've otherwise got an Internet connection I'd say just follow the advice it gives you and try again in a little while. Server might be down.

there is a few things that you can try out:

- use Update manager on the Taskbar - - Edit - Software Sources ,
then on the Official Repositories Tab - - Click on Both Mirrors & select the Fastest Mirror for your Location,
& Click on Update Cache in the Top Right Corner.

- use Package Manager AKA synaptic - - click on the Refresh Icon on that Top Bar.

then see if any updates are now showing ..

Cinnamon xlet updates are not via the repos, the relevant settings modules (Themes, Applets, Desklets, Extensions) poll the Cinnamon Spices website directly.

OP - try disabling IPv6 in your network settings to see if that makes any difference.

sure, but even though those Cinnamon xlet updates are not via the repos,,
- this was just one way, to check that the system is able to download any necessary files ..
:)
so then, maybe be able to download any available Cinnamon xlet updates.
