Generally speaking any ONE of the many official software repositories will work - no matter where in the world you are, - but in reality choosing one of the closest software repositories to your location will help you to get the quickest download speeds when updating or adding software packages.

Change your repository manually

You can edit the sources.list file found at /etc/apt/sources.list using your choice of text editors. Root permissions are required. To enable a repository, simply remove the comment symbol (#) that precedes the repository you would like to activate, and add one to the beginning of the previously active repository.

NOTE: You should NEVER have more than one software repository enabled at one time!
