When I run apt-get update I get some failures at the end and I'd like to remove them but I don't know which PPA they are coming from. I have Y-PPA Manager installed, but still can't find where it is coming from.

I think you should be able to use the GUI 'Software and Updates' program for that. It's installed by default. Use these instructions

  1. Open "Software and Updates" by searching it from the Dash.
  2. Open the "Other Software" tab.
  3. Find any lines relating to the repository which is giving you problems (Medibuntu in this case) and untick the box in front of it. Note that they may be titled with the full URL or a more friendly name.
  4. Close the window
  5. Rerun and check if it still errors, if it does, try disabling more related repos.

    sudo apt-get update

All the medibuntu repos aren't working, so this will find where they are

grep -RE '^\s*[^#].*medibuntu.*' /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*.list}

That will likely just show up a couple of files. Edit those (remove the lines or comment them with a #) and your next update should work fine.

or sudo sed -i '/medibuntu/d' /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*.list} ;) –  Braiam Oct 15 '13 at 14:07
