Everytime I try to check for new updates, I always get this error message :

W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found
W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

And I get a message telling me to check my internet connection, I am connected via WiFi to internet. What's the problem?


The PPA ppa:pmcenery/ppa "PPA for Paul McEnery" doesn't contain any packages for Precise so you can't use it.

Remove it from your software sources. See How to remove a repository? if you don't know how to do this.
