sudo apt-get update command always gives me errors. It's been days since my package lists have been updated. Can anyone help me to correct it? Here is the Screenshot: enter image description here

EDIT:
here are the commands and their ouputs:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list | grep -e ^[^#]

post the output of these commands: cat /etc/apt/sources.list | grep -e ^[^#] and cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* | grep -e ^[^#] (to copy from terminal: select text, then Ctrl+Shift+C, in description use <pre>...</pre> tag, to format text nicely) –  B. Roland Apr 9 '11 at 16:30
    
Probably the same problem as this person, PPA went away or something: askubuntu.com/questions/19170/ppa-causing-404-error –  Jorge Castro Apr 9 '11 at 16:45
    
i just edited the description like roland suggested. –  neo Apr 9 '11 at 16:56

It looks like a spelling error in you sources.list. Apt should be fetching

http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu/dists/maverick/main/binary-i386/*

, but you are missing the a in /ppa/

Update after you posted sources.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/pp/ubuntu maverick main

should be

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu maverick main

And ditto for deb-src

Update 2: Actually, you appear to have both the correct spelling and an errornous spelling, so you should just remove the lines with the missing a's.
