I think this problem is a duplicate of , could you take a look at my comment and see if this fix the issue for you ? (the part about check_config_file_age = false)

Fwiw, had the same issue (started the upgrade process last week, download failed a few times because of local issues, finally was able to try and move forward today). On system-upgrade reboot, I was getting this error about the Updates repository not being accessible. Removing the system-upgrade cache and trying again allowed the upgrade to complete.
