Welcome to LQ.

Remove the "ppa.launchpad.net_antonio.chiurazzi_ppa" entry
in Synaptic ( if available ), or in /etc/apt/sources.list :

gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
... and then delete the "antonio.chiurazzi_ppa" line(s).

And afterwards refresh the package lists : sudo apt-get update

.

OK, the "ppa" text is probably in :

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/<name>.list
