When I try to update, I get this error:

You need to remove all the sources you listed in your question from your Software Sources. Or else, you will not be able to update anything else. – user135417 Feb 25 '13 at 6:19
@Mik Thanks for noticing! I just saw your comment, and rolled this back. In the future, I highly recommend flagging to deal with this, if you cannot roll back yourself. – Eliah Kagan Feb 25 '13 at 11:04

The PPA requested does not have a Oneiric Release. The one that works is here:

You have upgraded and not edited your sources.list to reflect that change.

As you can see right from the error, it's hitting a 404. If you punch the URL it's failing on into a browser, you'll see the same. This happens because not all PPAs are built for all versions of Ubuntu.

If you look at you'll see that it only covers hardy through natty. So you either need to find a better PPA or adjust your lists settings so it pulls from the natty version (instead of oneiric).

I'd personally look for another. Looking deeper, the software here hasn't been updated for almost a year.
