I have visited several repositories which have that statement. What is really going on.

Edit: To clarify the question. If the repository doesn't exist, where did they move it to? How do I fix getting the stable repository?

Because when I use the link provided at that page it gives me this: Not allowed here Sorry, you don't have permission to access this page.

Here's and example:

When you arrive this is what you get enter image description here

I've just checked it and you're true. Which other PPAs are affected according to you? – Lekensteyn Feb 18 '12 at 20:44
From visiting the official PPA page and logging in it tells me I don't have access. So, perhaps they've turned it into a private PPA instead of a public? – Chuck R Feb 18 '12 at 20:47
What's the question here? That PPA doesn't exist anymore so the page is correct. – Jorge Castro Feb 18 '12 at 20:49

The repository has moved. It doesn't mean the files don't exist just placed somewhere else.
