E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/simonschneegans/testing/ubuntu disco Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

It's my understanding that 19.04 is still currently supported, and there's nothing else to upgrade to. I tried using the solution outlined here, but that's way back from 2014, and it didn't work.

How do I fix this error?

    19.04 does not appear to be currently supported by the simonschneegans/testing PPA – steeldriver Jul 6 at 19:13

    PPA's are 3rd party software sources; you must check they support your release, are well maintained. etc - that PPA appears to have last been supported in late 2018. – guiverc Jul 6 at 19:31

The PPA at http://ppa.launchpad.net/simonschneegans/testing/ubuntu doesn't support disco yet, but they do support cosmic.

Let's fix this...

Search for the appropriate .list file to edit, with grep -i simonschneegans /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list, and then edit your {found_file_name} with sudo -H gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/found_file_name.list and change disco to cosmic.
