    Default Re: [ask] update

    The repos located at that location are not there somehow, maybe not needed anymore...Some packages sometimes are moved to other sections. So you need to change the repos list and see the right location or comment the line...

    You can comment the line by typing:

    nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    Move your cursor using the arrows, get to the line with:
    deb http://ppa....... and comment it. It should look like this:
    # deb http://ppa......

    Then press Ctl+O to save, then press enter to confirm and then Ctl+x to exit...

    Re-run aptitude update...
