What you have is a bad source file in your sources.list.d. Probably you were following some tutorial at some point that involved using wget to download a source file, and something went wrong and you got an html file by mistake.

Try
Code:
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/conkyhardcore-lucid.list
sudo apt-get update
That should sort it out.

Please paste your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/conkyhardcore-lucid.list file here in [code] tags. I suspect there are invalid lines in there.
