The repository isn't added properly to the APT sources. Have you been editing the sources.list file manually? Please don't do that!

As you can see APT now tries to fetch 

instead of (correct):

Please use the add-apt-repository utility next time to add PPAs. I suggest to remove the repository from your sources.list for now and re-add the repository:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa_-saucy.list
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Then run

sudo apt-get update

again and it should use a working URL.
