This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Please paste contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ferramroberto-filezilla-oneiric.list in your question. – user31389 Apr 29 '13 at 12:36
I assume that it is because i removed tick marks near ferramroberto-filezilla-oneiric.list in update manager and i was unable to open update manger now. – blue Apr 29 '13 at 12:38

i removed the ain in the contents but there is some errors like W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. – blue Apr 29 '13 at 12:44

try an updated repo. Those repos are for a dated version of ubuntu, which is no longer in the repo. You could downlod and compile the latest version from:

or goto your the filezilla "Help" menu and check for updates.

removing and re-adding the repo will not help. The pages aren't there. removing the repo will get rid of the errors when you update via CLI.
