Indeed, cairo-doc.org is not responding from here either, so perhaps the site is down.

To get update working, it is not the package you need to remove, but the link to the remote repository. Removing a repository does not remove the already installed packages from that repository, but it does mean they won't get updated.

If you usually use synaptic, then use it to remove the repository. If you usually use apt-get from the command line, then edit /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out or remove the cairo-dock lines.

Incidentally, is there a reason why you need to use apt-get to do the update instead of synaptic? (it isn't a problem, I'm just curious why you didn't prefer one or the other).
