after updating from 13.10 to 14.04 from LiveCD my Spotify installation dissapeared.

I tried to install it as before by following Spotify guide and entering these commands:

sudo apt-add-repository -y "deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free" &&
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59 &&
sudo apt-get update -qq &&
sudo apt-get install spotify-client

but all I get is this error:

dominic@dominic-MS-7592:~$ sudo apt-add-repository -y "deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free" &&
> sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59 &&
> sudo apt-get update -qq &&
> sudo apt-get install spotify-client

I believe the Spotify server is broken at this moment. The packages for Spotify are in repository.spotify.com/dists/stable, not in repository.spotify/dists/trusty. That is why apt-get can't find them. I have Spotify running happily, but when I do a sudo apt-get install --reinstall spotify-client I get the same 404 errors.
As of this moment, the URL http://repository.spotify.com/dists redirects to http://repository-origin.spotify.com/dists, which to me suggests that someone over at Spotify is busy moving things around.
Currently, I can't even find any .deb files to manually download.

Now I got this error: paste.ubuntu.com/7742626 –  user158049 Jul 3 at 16:24

You need edit the sourcelist file:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/source.list

Comment the Spotify line:

## Spotify
#deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free

And add this line:

deb http://repository-origin.spotify.com stable non-free

Save and exit

Update&&Upgrade

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
