Could you edit your question with the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list? – Jjed Jan 22 '12 at 9:46

That's usually caused by one of your software repositories failing (such as a PPA that no longer works).

Try this from a terminal:

sudo apt-get update

You should see a message about a repository error. If you don't see the message, scroll through all the output until you find it.

Once you find the culprit, disable it in Software Sources and update again. The message should go away.
