How can I fix a 404 Error using a PPA?

I read that kile was upgraded to version 2.1.2 which might have a live preview feature included. So I wanted to install it on ubuntu 11.10 but I don't seem to have much luck. I added the ppa for kile/stable but it doesn't work. This is what i get after sudo apt-get update:

W: Failed to fetch  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch  404  Not Found

and a similar one for binary 386 I can't post because i am a new user and i can only have 2 hyper links.

Is there a way to install the newest version of kile in ubuntu 11.10? I would like to avoid installing ubuntu 12.04 since I had some bad experiences with this new version.

You can always download the source and compile it – Dan Jun 21 '12 at 23:25
i am not very well versed in compiling stuff in linux so I'd rather not try this at the moment. – lucian Jun 22 '12 at 0:00

There isn't an 11.10 PPA for Kile listed at that PPA, just 12.04, 11.04, 10.10, and 10.04. Not sure why they skipped 11.10. You could attempt adding the PPA for 11.04 or 12.04, but I'm unfamiliar with Kile so I don't know how well that work work or not.

How do I go about adding a specific ppa? I mean for a specific ubuntu version? – lucian Jun 21 '12 at 23:52
Edit the file it created in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and change oneiric to either precise or natty – tgm4883 Jun 22 '12 at 3:57
I tried that but it still doesn't work there seems to be some dependency issues. – lucian Jun 22 '12 at 9:35
So then your next options are to either compile, upgrade Ubuntu, or ask the owner of that PPA if they will make an Oneiric build. – tgm4883 Jun 22 '12 at 15:54
yes i arrived to that conclusion too... unfortunately i had some problems with ubuntu 12.04... it would randomnly log me off while working and all the programs would close so i lost my work a few time. after that i decided to get back to 11.10 because i couldn't find the cause of the crashes (i have been using linux only for about a year now so I don't know much about it). – lucian Jun 23 '12 at 10:33
