After searching and trying some of the solutions which are already there on Stack. I am still getting following errors after updating by command

sudo apt-get update

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I have tried to change the source.list in /etc/apt/source.list to

https://repogen.simplylinux.ch/txt/trusty/sources_ea1ee6370a7250187bd9b0b7da2b433794869b25.txt

using Ubuntu Sources List Generator in

This answer didnt solved my answer since its just for chrome Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages - Chrome[duplicate] 1

I have been trying to understand where I am going wrong but still I couldn't make it out.

Thanks in advance.
