MATE Desktop 1.16 is a major update over version 1.14 released six months ago:

Our mirror at USTC is down (in fact, for quite some time now) due to hardware failures in their hard disk arrays.
That said, you might need to change your APT source lists to install and update packages normally. Use
apt-gen-list -l to see your options (avoid
10-ustc for now), and
apt-gen-list -e "repo1 repo2 repo3" to enable new mirrors to use.
We will post another notice when USTC's mirror has resolved this issue.
