Pipeline apt-get update Fails

Here is my Pipeline file 

# This is a sample build configuration for JavaScript.
# Check our guides at for more examples.
# Only use spaces to indent your .yml configuration.
# -----
# You can specify a custom docker image from Docker Hub as your build environment.
image: node:10.9.0
step: max-time: 10
name: production
deployment: production
script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
npm install
npm install -g @angular/cli@7.3.3
ng build --prod
apt-get clean
apt-get update
apt-get install ncftp
echo Finished uploading files to $FTP_HOST$FTP_SITE_R
definitions: caches: ncftp: /var/cache/apt node: node_modules


This is the error I am getting 

+ apt-get update

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


This was working a couple of day ago but now it failing. Any help on solving this issue would be much appreciated.

Docker images based off Debian Jessie no longer perform apt-get update successfully.

We have full details documented here:

You can likely just upgrade your Docker image to a new version to fix the issue. 10.9.0 is no longer a support tag (which is why it wasn't updated to fix this issue), but you can use node:10.9.0-stretch if you don't want to upgrade your node version. Otherwise I suggest you use a supported node tag documented here:
