As I know it means that this ppa is offline or not working. So you have to delete this PPA by ppa-purge or by gui tool Y PPA manager

To install Y PPA manager:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install y-ppa-manager

And then find Gwibber PPA and remove it.

P.S. But Gwibber ppa is have to work.
