You have added some items to your /etc/apt/sources.list or added files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d which refer to Debian repositories. While Ubuntu uses the "deb" package format, originating on Debian, Ubuntu is not Debian. You should not use Debian repositories on Ubuntu.

You should remove or adjust the lines you added to those files, which refer to deb.debian.org. If you keep them, and somehow manage to install packages from there, you almost certainly will break your install of Ubuntu.

  • I have the same warning since not long. I could not find deb.debian.org whether in /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d.
