I am running now Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin but i still have today problem with this sources for chromium. Anyone have the Daily-Dev apt sources for chromium?

Failed to fetch

Following up on @SirCharlo's comment. It seems that of the four chromium channels the only ones with a Precise Pangolin build as of this writing are the Stable and Beta ones.

So you can remove the ppa you already added as using the rm above.

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*chromium*

Alternately, you can use ppa-purge or the Y PPA Manager gui, double clicking on "Remove a PPA."

Then install one of the available channel's builds. So to get the one from beta:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/beta
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

I guess this will do until the Precise builds are available for more bleeding edge dev/daily channels again. At least there's no "failed to fetch" error and it gets updated periodically.

Thank you @yuvilio ! – Papachan May 11 '12 at 21:16

Alternative Chromium PPA

The PPAs above are not being updated at all. Alex Shkop has taken up responsibility to keep a better, more updated PPA set for chromium. They include:

You can purge your older PPA using ppa-purge command.

Note: The above PPAs are only for 12.04 at the moment.

Daily Builds

For the daily builds, you can use the Chromium Continuous Build site to get the binary for your architecture.

Try these commands:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*chromium*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Same Problem after update W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found – Papachan Apr 27 '12 at 13:25
It would seem that the chromium-daily PPA doesn't contain builds for Precise yet! Check it out yourself here. I'm sure they'll get to it soon, though. – SirCharlo Apr 27 '12 at 13:32
Oh yes you are totally right ! – Papachan Apr 27 '12 at 13:32
PPA is now officially dead, as it will tell you when you try and add it. – Andy E Apr 23 '14 at 13:31

You can also install google-chrome-unstable if you want something similar to the chromium daily builds, from the official Google repositories. Here is the list:
