Failed to download repository information


W:Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/dists...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 173.194.34.133 80]
, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

The error message above says it all. What I'd like to know is is there a way to rectify the problem making it possible to get access to that repository or should I just get rid of that entry in my list?

Ken.

I did - the response was "Not found" which is why I asked the question. In short, is it fixable or should I dump it? I really do like Google Earth so, if it is a useful repository, I'd like to try the fix before resorting to dump.

OK! Then "dump" it will have to be. Thank you.
